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.

My first set of figures to be published in a Scientific Journal. Created during my time with the InfoGraphics Lab. Was a beneficial project for my experience with label placement and color blind safe designs.

One of the first projects I contributed to during my time at the InfoGraphics Lab. This was an influential project in my familiarization with Adobe as a design resource. A lot of the work consisted of adapting maps and layouts from the 1st edition Atlas, but also included the design of new map topics, such as the climate change series.

This is one of two maps I made for Ethos magazine. It serves as a reference for the locations and cities mentioned in the article.

I made this one for my partner's birthday, and while it's not a full view of the Oregon coast, it shows the places we'd traveled to. Trying some new layers and blending methods for the terrain was definitely the highlight for me.
