This was a fun project using labeling and overlays in ArcMap to create a fun cartographic map. This is a fictitious historical map of Viking lords and lands in the Lawrencetown Region, Nova Scotia in the year 806 AD. In this time period Lords controlled vast tracts of land surrounded by forests and wilderness. The Lords of the valley constantly battled for land and boarders were short lived.

The purpose of this project was to explore cartographic elements, projections and style. Using a instructor provided data set a map outlining the course of the ill-fated 1914 Shackleton Expedition was created. In addition to the map a web-version of the map was also created with images linked along the travel path of the crew.
