A Modern-Day Mapmaker

Check out this article about Tom Harrison, a Californian cartographer who started his own mapmaking business in the 1970’s.  His maps are made for hiking, backpacking, and mountain biking in the parks and wilderness of California.  He explains what goes into a good map and why making one can take nearly two years.
