Currently I am a student in the Cartographic Specialist program at Fleming College.
We have a coop project to complete in 3.5 weeks time and we experienced a major setback with respect to data and therefore had to start over last week. The final output is a 24''x30'' thematic map with a background which is a detailed base map of Nunavut. It will contain surround information about the differences of wastewater treatment between northern and southern latitudes. The base has been created in ArcMap, and we have explored several DEMs in effort to find proper resolution. ETOPO1 data is what was settled on. We created a custom colour ramp in ArcMap, and it has left the north of Nunavut with a yellow tinge. Can this be considered as cartographically correct? If not, what would be some suggested routes to take in ArcMap or Photoshop to make the North appear a little bit more northern.
