Ian A. Freeman Cartography 

The Birkebeiner Ski Race

A poster detailing the historic Birkebeiner route, and its connection to the present day ski race. Created using ArcGIS Pro, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Photoshop. Bill Loy Excellence in Cartography winner.

A report I spent a lot of time on as a student cartographer with the InfoGraphics Lab. Much of the work was compiling the layers in GIS, deciding the extent, and preparing the map elements for final stylization by USGS. The maps I've included here are three of the herd maps that I later designed at WMI for the report release video.

These are part of a series of 10 maps I had to quickly put together for the 150th Anniversary of Yellowstone Symposium in Cody, Wyoming. They were featured on posters at the event along with other maps and figures that I adapted from the Atlas of Yellowstone, 2nd Ed. and Wild Migrations: Atlas of Wyoming's Ungulates.
