Last Thursday I found out that the “People’s of the Middle East and North Africa…40 Years On” map that I created at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire won honorable
mention in the 2013 National Geographic Award in Mapping. I’m proud to say that the work that I put into this map can be seen through the hype it’s been receiving. I appreciate
Paul Kaldjian pushing me to create original work with the emphasis on modern cartographic methods. This project allowed myself to learn the basic’s of cartography and with that
the software used in the field today. It highly contributed to my future project’s and the bar I set my mapping projects from then on out. My project can be viewed on my blog here
Thanks again UWEC, Robert Roth, Sean O’ Connor, AAG, and any others who not only helped but love maps as much I as I do.
