Attached is an overview of my Bartram Trail map. I don't expect you to read detail from this, I'll attach some detail later. This should give a good understanding of the terrain visualization and page layout. The white text boxes are the interpretive data, and in my opinion the most important element aside from the map. I tried to make it stand out. The green boxes are info that needs to be there, but I don't want it to compete with the map. The main goal was to keep the text boxes from the creases of the folds. The only thing I couldn't do anything about was the profile, it was too damn long.

Programs used in this order: Arc, PS, AI, and InD.

Very nice work! Gorgeous hill shading with a nice subtle color ramp. Can't see any detail obviously, but I do notice that the spacing off the neat-line is a little uneven in the upper left and lower right inset groups.

So are you going to post this map piece-by-piece? :P

Just kidding, it looks great so far. Would love to see some detail though.
