I produced this map of public ownership in the Mountains to Sound Greenway to be printed on three 5' wide retractable banner stands, for a total dimension of 6.5' x 15'. I've already printed the big banner (darn deadlines), but I'm going to be re-printing smaller versions for the office and events. The attached map will be printed on a 3' x 6.5' banner.
The banners will be shown to the general public at events and meetings. At one large upcoming event, the 15' version will be on a stage and the 6.5' wide version will be in a lobby. The map is meant to be viewed from a distance, so I avoided detail to keep it simple (and to save time). In the larger version, I have one extra layer, a hollow property parcel over the private rural lands, which blends nicely at a distance but better describes the landscape when viewed up close.
I designed it entirely in ArcMap, except for the added legend patches. As of yet, ArcMap is the only software I've used for cartography.
I've attached a segment of the west side.
