Olympus Provincial Park

November 2022

Honorable Mention: CaGIS 2024 Map Awards

The idea of creating a midcentury-looking map of a preserve on Mars was stuck in my brain for many years. After a long period of dreaming, and failed attempts, I was finally able to get it working.
There’s no real fictional backstory to this map, and so that’s left to the reader to fill in. Why a “provincial” park instead of a planetary or national one, for example? I don’t know. It just sounded good.
See if you can spot all the references to Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles
