NACIS members produce a Map Quilt as part of the conference in October. Each participating cartographer gets an area of coverage, scale and projection, and can do whatever they want cartographically with it.
This year the area is around Pittsburgh, where the conference will be. As part of my continuing exploration of Bartholomew and Sons cartography, I did the attached. It's in the style of their London Plan, one of the early maps I fell in love with. Now, the density of this area of Pittsburgh is a lot lighter than London. And this doesn't do much for showing the incredible ups and downs of the nieghborhoods. And while I'm mostly OK with how it turned out, I'm not 100% satisfied, and so I turn to you: what isn't working about this, given that it's referring to a specific older model?
All thoughts welcome. Thanks!
