Oregon '82 - David Imus
CartoGIS honored David Imus with the 38th Annual "Best of Show" map award for, “The Essential Geography of the United States of America”. As a proud Geography alumnus from the University of Oregon, I pay tribute to Imus with a snapshot from his map of the United States. You see it on every page of my website as my header-image. If he asks me to take down this image, I will happily do so as I inserted my signature and text on top of his artwork and hard work. I eventually want to display a head-banner of my cartographic work, but I haven't developed my cartographic skill to his level yet.
David is a 35-year cartography veteran still living in Oregon, and Slate Magazine claims this is the "Greatest Paper Map of the United States You Will Ever See".
