A series of maps created for the final assignment of GISC 403 in the MGIS programme.

Key Points

  • 10 maps of the Tasman region, created for the final assignment of GISC 403
  • Contains topographical, locational, statistical, a web map and 'non traditional' maps
  • Designed with a tourist audience in mind

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.
