It's been quite a long time since I've got something up here. I made this for an up coming trip. We'll use it as a basemap for general reference, trip planning, and land navigation. Data was some what limited, but i compiled from what i could find.

comments and critiques welcome.

Do you have a web based photo sharing service like flikr or picassa? You can upload much bigger images to them and then just link the pic in the message editor on CartoTalk.

Here's Rob's map.

Attached File  Pagan_Base_v4.png   1.56MB   153 downloads

For some reason I could not upload it as a jpg (not even after re-saving it from Photoshop), so in the end I made a PNG out of it. Please keep that in mind when you're commenting, any quality issues caused by that are my fault, not Rob's ;)

Looks good. Like something you might see from a national mapping agency.
So you're going there for vacation? Looks like you'll be "getting away from it all". :D

Nice map Rob. :) I really enjoy the simplicity of the work, leaving all irrelevant data off the map. I'm assuming this work was solely done in ArcGIS, correct?

I hope you have a fun (and safe) journey!

thanks!
I used arc for compilation and and data manipulation, then into illustrator and photoshop. data sources was whatever i could find and cross reference, some older maps/charts, sat imagery, and some elevation data; there wasn't much irrelevant data i could find unfortunately LOL. i'm off today to field check it ;)
