How to Make this Vintage Map Poster of Yellowstone

I just assembled this vintage style poster of Yellowstone, blending a beautiful hand-drawn grayscale hillshade by Bill von Allmen in 1983, from the Shaded Relief Archive, and modern satellite imagery. In about a half-hour!

I say “assembled” because I’m just putting pieces together. Here’s how!

Happy Mapping! John

About the author

I have far too much fun looking for ways to understand and present data visually, hopefully driving product strategy and engaging users. I work in the ArcGIS Living Atlas team at Esri, pushing and pulling data in all sorts of absurd ways and then sharing the process. I also design user experiences for maps and apps. When I'm not doing those things, I'm chasing around toddlers and wrangling chickens, and generally getting into other ad-hoc adventures. Life is good.
