Mapping the resilient Northern Great Plains

Tribal Partnerships
Client:   The Nature Conservancy

The Nature Conservancy has a big, landscape-scale story to tell about its work with Native tribes and ranchers across the prairies of the Northern Great Plains. So we made a series of six showcase maps of the work, including three thematic views of the whole regions and three highlights of specific TNC preserves.

This project presented a challenge to incorporate complex messaging and vastly different map scales across several maps that we wanted to have a clear family resemblance while also each presenting its distinct message. 

We built the maps entirely in ArcGIS Pro, including setting all type, iconography, and inset photos. These maps won First Place for a Map Series or Atlas at the 2020 Esri User Conference, the world’s largest mapping industry event.
