Tasman Regional Atlas

Oct 2015

As part of the final assignment of the Cartography and Visualization course on the Masters in Geographic Information Science programme, we created an atlas of a chosen region of New Zealand.

It needed to include a topographical, locational, statistical and non traditional web map. I created a tourist orientated atlas guide to the Tasman region, which included a subset of maps specifically for the Abel Tasman National Park.
