Labeling techniques of
physical and cultural features
This was the opening exercise of the course Applied Cartography, a course dedicated to teaching better map design. My task was to select a country and create two A4-sized, reference-styled map designs, one of the country as a whole and one focusing on a part/region of the country. The maps were to provide an overview of key features (physical and cultural) in the chosen country and selected area, respectively. Particular focus was devoted to the application of labeling techniques, the use of annotation and masking, as well as post-processing in Photoshop.
