Trail Map "Dos and Don'ts": Best Practices for Designing Trail Maps Webinar

 Registration is closed for this event
Love maps? Curious about map design? Join Trail Conference Cartographer Jeremy Apgar to learn about the design choices that help make our trail maps so popular and trusted by trail users, and discover best practices for making a good trail map from the perspective of an organization with more than 85 years of mapping experience!

 

Trail maps have great power in their ability to safely guide trail users to amazing outdoor destinations. However, a bad trail map can make a trip unpleasant at best, or dangerous at worst. It is important to carefully consider design choices when creating a map, from broad styles down to the smallest details.

In this webinar, we will examine some of the design decisions that differentiate a good trail map from a bad one, from the perspective of an organization with more than 85 years of trail mapping experience in the New York Metropolitan area.

Come prepared to critique and share your thoughts about trail maps, and learn some best practices for creating detailed trail maps that are easy to use. All trail users, from casual walkers to experienced mountain bikers or hikers, should have access to a good trail map to make the most of their outdoor experience.
