California State Parks Closures Mapping

Map of Proposed State Park Closures
This map was featured in Bay Nature magazine and shows state parks threatened with closures due to budget issues in 2012.
Client:   Bay Nature

Budget difficulties in California had led to the threat of closing many State Parks. Bay Nature magazine asked GreenInfo to develop a centerfold map to highlight the park closures against the backdrop of the state's geography.

During 2011 and 2012, there was a substantial budget threat to California's state parks, with the prospect of scores of parks being closed for a year or more.  Bay Nature had commission an article on the crisis and asked GreenInfo's Louis Jaffe to develop a map to illustrate the situation. The resulting map uses a simple graphic design, but contains complex visual information about different types of parks and their closure status.
