Hello! I have made a pretty little map whose purpose is to convey historically accurate information to a group of professionals who will use that info to make an informed decision on the topic at hand. Citing all of my sources cannot be done, shall we say, beautifully! What are your thoughts on having "sources available on request," or some other compromise? Thank you!
When you say "all" sources, are you talking about sources for base layers as well as thematic data?
If you can, separate your sources into those for base information and those that are directly related to the decision making process at hand and see if that gives you a more manageable list. Obviously, leave off the base sources but note that all sources can be provided upon request and prepare a document in case they are needed.
