This poster presents the results of two 1-day workshops titled “The Art of Effective Map Design”, in which 24 students produced artistic maps composed of individual tiles, or panels, in very different designs. The approach, inspired by the “Map Quilts” produced for the annual conference of the North America Cartographic Information Society (NACIS), illustrates a range of possible map styles ranging from traditional base maps to water color maps with fuzzy boundaries.
