This map is a replica of a map of the same name published by the US National Park Service. The purpose of making this map was to demonstrate that ArcGIS could be used to make a replica of a map that required multiple other specialized software applications. The audience for this map is the general public.
Our main guiding principle was to come as close as we could to exactly replicating the original map produced by the National Park Service. We worked with the cartographer of the original map to learn his intentions and insights about what was important on this map.
