Two Maps

Hey Classmates, 

This is a stake in the ground to hold my project.  I wanted to become familiar with the tools before I created my final project.   More to come very soooon! 

Life Map

I've lived in Rhode Island, Washington DC, Santa Fe NM, and San Francisco CA.  I'd like to create a map that outlines my life in each of these places.  Let's think of it as a new country based one these places. 

Ireland Trip

We're going on a trip to Irleand in March.  I was thinking I should use this trip as fertil content for a map.  (Still thinking about How I would do this.) 

Questions, questions, questions. 

  • Why am I making this map?    [I've always been a map lover and am dying to try making my own maps. This is a GREAT way for me to think about a different way of looking at geolocation and conceptual design.]]
  • Why am I the expert to create this map?  []
  • Who is my target audience? 
  • Do I want my final project to be printed or digital?
  • What level of detail do I need to include?
