Maps Needed

I’m putting out a general call for map examples to publish in the 2nd edition of GIS Cartoraphy: A Guide to Effective Map Design. All maps will be considered, digital and print. I’m looking for examples of all kinds of maps so submit what you’ve got.

They need to be owned by you or, if not, the copyright permissions must be easily securable in a short timeframe. We aren’t paying money for the maps, for which I am very apologetic, but they will be in a book that was considered a best seller the first time around by it’s publisher so it is likely to gain you some exposure.

These maps are to be featured in the “map examples” section of the book. A short description of each map will be placed beneath it. The maps are not critiqued, just used as examples.

You must be able to supply a high resolution file or screen shot (via quite a large monitor for scaling down). Vertically oriented maps look best as the book is in a vertical format, but I can consider horizontally oriented maps as well.

There’s a “contact” link in the right-hand side bar that you can use to submit. Thank you!

*We’ll be trying to limit the book to one map per author. If you already have a map being published in the book, don’t submit another one.

    Hi Bobby-you can use the “contact” link in the right sidebar. Just go ahead and email me with whatever you’ve got. Whether it’s a link to an online map, or an attached pdf, emf, or similar format, or whether it’s a link to a download location, just go ahead and submit. Thanks!
