dc.description.abstract In the 2007 State of the Sound Puget Sound Partnership report, the map graphics fail to communicate their intended purpose for a number of reasons; namely, the lack of a cohesive look, cartographic missteps, and often an unclear message. In the Analysis section of this report, we itemize critical map components, and draw on examples from maps containing elements consistent with best cartographic practices. These maps are proposed indicator maps from the University of Washington’s GIS & Sustainability Master’s Program course “Principles of GIS Mapping”. Drawing on the findings from the analysis section, the Recommendations section provides a recommended mapping approach, look, and method for evaluating indicator critical points. By adopting these recommendations, subsequent versions of maps in the State of the Sound report can avoid inaccurate representation and simple miscommunication. en_US
