This is a map that I produced of North Dakota. It was only for fun and not for a work project. The 'intended audience' in mind is visitors to ND but I was thinking of it to be used as a general reference road map too.
It was all done using ArcView 9.2.
I would very much appreciate ANY comments, critical especially. I am relatively new to cartography and GIS and want to increase my learning through map making if possible.
Some things to note perhaps:
Are the labels placed correctly?
I know the DEM is not necessary but does it look good as a background? I tried hillshade too but think this looks better.
Does the legend read well?
Do the colours and use of halos get my messages across?
I tried the font for the first time....does it work?
