I'm working on a map in a series for our most recent General Plan revision. It shows our city's design corridors. One goal was to make the current map distinct from previous versions. I'm also trying to enhance the design and communicate more information on the map. I've included excerpts from the city code in the callouts. The map is 11x17 and should be bound at the top.
I'm interested in feedback on all elements of the map, but the biggest question I have is concerning fonts. The previous version of this map used all Arial fonts. I felt Times New Roman communicated better with the excerpts from the city code book and I liked the distinction it made with the previous version when I changed the title block. But the legend...should that be Times as well or should I keep it Arial along with labeling on the map? Is there a generally-accepted rule? I'm considering changing the legend and the design corridor labeling to Times, but my road labels are Arial and would be difficult and time-consuming to change.
Thanks for your insight. Give it to me straight. I would really like to up my cartographic sense.
