The Downtown Portland map was a demonstration of how Portland tourist maps could be improved. It is not maintained.
It showed an unprecedented level of detail. Galleries, public art, restaurants, coffeehouses, pubs & bakeries were clearly labeled on the map and in the index. Parking, mass transit, and key landmarks are shown. If your time is limited, you can see at a glance what areas have the greatest density of restaurants, pubs, or coffeehouses.
The downtown Palo Alto Gallery map was a demonstration of a particular map style. It provided key information for visitors doing the First Friday art walk. Art galleries, restaurants, coffeehouses, pubs & bakeries were clearly labeled on the map. The color-coded parking system, parks, and key landmarks were shown. However it is out of date and no longer maintained.
The Arastradero Open Space Preserve Map shows the Palo Alto park with shaded relief, trails, trail distances, parking, and gates.
This map of Portland bakeries was first unveiled in February 2011. It’s a bit of an experiment since no streets are labeled. In order to work on a letter size page, there’s not much room for street names. However the general neighborhood centers should be evident — for instance Alberta Street has a fabulous cluster of bakeries.
The "chocolate map" is a postcard map that I created Feb 12, 2007. I had noticed that there was practically a chocolate district spanning the Pearl and Downtown, and I thought it would be fun to propose a "Chocolate district walk" whereby you can visit all of them. I went to each chocolatier and asked them which product they wanted to iconically represent them on the map. The map shows six (formerly eight) chocolate shops within a ten block radius in Portland.
A columnar map that serves as a focal point for the lobby
This 27 foot wide map shows all the trails, parks, and recreational opportunities surrounding San Jose. The form factor was chosen based on the dimensions of a large column in the lobby. The map melds land cover with shaded relief, resulting in an informative map which harmonizes with the interior design, yet provides a focal point for customer discussions.
