A Quick Map of Farmland Loss in Western Washington

I made this one for the American Farmland Trust. Stats were provided by AFT.

The CORE GIS 2012 Holiday Card

This time, with more reindeer! I used three historic maps to make this card, all from the David Rumsey collection of historic maps. The reindeer bit is from a 1967 Polish atlas, the holly leaves are from a map of forests produced as part of the tenth Census of the USA (1880), and the red holly berries are from a map of North America "Exhibiting the Recent Discoveries, Geographical and Nautical; etc etc" published in London in 1824.

If you did not receive a CORE GIS holiday card and wish to be on the list for next year, drop me a line!
