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 Content team at Esri, pushing and pulling data in all sorts of absurd ways -and then talking about it. I also get to spend time with the Story Maps team, working on fun and useful user experiences. 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.
