Where I am from ? (Places that made me who I am)

Where I am from ? (Places that made me who I am) - student project

I am always asked : "Where are you from ?". I was born in France, and I live in France, so it could ne an easy answer. But, I lived in so much places in France that I can not relate to one and only place.

So I would like to create a map of "my" France, to explain where I grew up, lived, worked, spent holidays, and how it has influenced the person I am now.

  • Why am I making this map? For fun? A client? A gift? To showcase my favorite places? Etc.

I am making this map for fun. I have no idea what it will be at the end...

  • Why am I the expert to create this map?

I am the expert, because the map is about my life ;-)

  • Who is my target audience?

Me ! I am doing this for fun. I don't think anyone else will be interested by a map about me ;-)

  • Do I want my final project to be printed or digital? How is going to be used/held? What other constraints do I need to keep in mind moving forward? (Note type can be smaller on printed maps than when viewed on web)

If the result is nice, I will print it of course !

  • What level of detail do I need to include? (Names, addresses, contact info, street names, website, hours, descriptions, color coding, etc.)

I'd like to include dates, pictures, some souvenirs...

  • Dear class, I need your help/expertise/guidance on how to...

10th March

I was very busy these past few weeks, because my kids are at home with me (school break, I forgot that when I enrolled this class...). But, it is still sunday, so I might not be too late with my final map...

This map needs more informations... I will add pictures related to the places. I think I will use black and white pictures to keep the map simple because I like it like that.

I'd also like to add friends places, where I go quite a lot. And may be I will create more icons.

Since this map is a lot about my life, it will never be finished... But I had fun to make it !
