This map is a redesign of a redesign. The original map it was created to replace felt a bit cluttered and took a lot of ink to print, so I wanted to make something that was clean and simple in comparison. The first iteration was one of the first big maps I made using ArcGIS Pro. A couple years later, I did a second iteration (featured here) and did away with the original number system in favor of a reference grid. I added a new color scheme that was more inline with the modern Florida State Park branding and made a bunch of small improvements such as masked labels, beefier borders, and replacing the sparse, generalized bathymetry with a geometric water pattern to save on even more ink. Other additions include some subtle reference data like roads, lakes, and urban areas, as well as 9 hidden Florida animal doodles for readers to find, which were all drawn by hand.
Good luck finding them all!
