Nosara, Costa Rica really is a surfer’s paradise with the some of the best wave action in the world.   Our task for my last lab assignment in Cartography is to correct a map that was not the easiest to read. So, I set our to use Illustrator to trace the initial image and then I started deleting all of the text, roads, and symbols.  Then using the old map as a base I took the cluttered map and created a more minimalistic map highlighting the points of interest.   Check out the before and after, tell me what you think, share if you like.
