Time to Map Off!


Gigantic Brewing Company is Portland's best-newest brewery.  Somehow the stars aligned and Ben Love from Hopworks joined forces with Van Havig (of Rockbottom fame) and they are now producing some of the finest fermented beverages in the land.
 
Their beer shop is a bit challenging for some to find and Gigantic is in need of a map.  Favoring an industrial-comic style, the locator map will benefit from rich source data that can be used to design a cartographic product representing this industrial railyard/Reed College part of town.

The scale has been set, the features has been extracted and we just need you to design these vectors and rasters into a spatial arrangement using an industrial comic-style. Please hold the dimensions to 8" x 10" and submit a PDF.

Vector shapefiles have been clipped at a desired extent (however don't feel limited by the source data) and we have the following layers zipped: arterials, trails, transit routes, building outlines, parks and greenspaces, railroads and streams (lines and poly's).
 
Download data:

Their logo as pictured above (but higher resolution) and their IPA label (jpg) for their style.

Vector layers (shapefiles) - (12Mb - includes building outlines, streets, parks & greenspaces, railroads, trails, transit and rivers.

Raster layers (tif and img) - (390Mb - includes LiDAR-derived bare earth and highest hit rasters and hillshades at 3ft resolution)
 
If you are looking for more data (and metadata for the data above) check out Metro's RLIS Discovery Site.  In addition, feel free to download out the RLIS quick reference guide (2.6Mb PDF).

Please send submissions and any questions to Matthew Hampton - Matthew(at)nacis.org
