New York High Line, featured in National Geographic, April 2011

Colter Sikora NY High LineMy work on this map focused on updating the map’s design and thematic content as the vision of the feature article became more defined.  Building on previous intern Maggie Smith’s design, I worked with the Director of Maps, William McNulty, to enhance the user-friendliness of the map spread and to verify the map’s accuracy.  This called for using Photoshop and Illustrator to generate visual effects and update place name information.  I was also responsible for communicating with the Friends of the High Line to verify the map’s accuracy.
