Portfolio of Maps by Andrew Kolasinski

Maps are an essential form of communication. As representations of our world they serve more than just to physically locate us, they also satisfy our need to hold the world in the palms of our hands. In my publishing projects I often create maps to enhance text, adding a layer of information that cannot be conveyed so effectively with words. All my maps are original, either vector graphics or hand drafted, created from satellite images or aerial photos, or on-site surveys and soundings. I have made all kinds of maps for many different projects and purposes. They fall into these categories: 1. Physical or Hypsometric maps showing geographic features and colored elevations; 2. Topographic and Bathometric maps showing elevations or water depths in contour lines; 3. Political or Chloropleth maps showing man-made divisions; 4. Economic or Resource maps showing human utilized resources; 5. Climate maps; 6. Road maps showing streets routes, and details of interest; 7. Thematic maps of specific data such as maps designed to show the location of a single address, or river access points and fishing pools.
