  • Contest: 2019 Best Overall Cartography
  • Submitter: Jacob Logan
  • Email: jacoblogan@email.arizona.edu
  • Authors: Jacob Logan
  • Organization: The University of Arizona, MSGIST 2019
  • Description: A map of Salt Lake City inspired by the London Tube map, which depicts tourist destinations in relation to Temple Square. This map was designed to fit into a coat pocket, and be used in tandem with Google Maps on a cellular device. The work done here was organizing the attractions and displaying them in a manner that would allow tourists to see places in relation to one another, and in relation to the city's central attraction. The map is also a nod to the Beehive State in that the layout is in the shape of a hexagon. Bees are also present as part of the map's symbology. The purpose of the map was to innovate through creativity while respecting cartographic conventions.
