This is my first project with MAPublisher, it is a map of German settlements in Texas. At one time, up until World War 1, over 90% of the population of six Texas counties spoke only German. After the war, it became so unpopular to be German that all of the Texas Germans taught their children only English and the language and culture died out. I thought it would be fun to make a map and timeline of Texas Germans to learn a little bit more about my local history and also the software.
I cant really make the map any larger on the layout as the text is already pretty small, but I dont have a lot of experience at laying out type and information along with a map. I am sure I could rearrange it to be more efficient (on the PDF mentioned below).
This is my first posting of a map i've made, but I would appreciate criticism and comments, thank you. Try not to be too brutal!
