Here is what we decided on yesterday according to my understanding. Please correct me, if I am incorrect.
1. Base Map – AutoCAD – Steven
2. Hi-Res Aerial Image – City and Downtown Scales – Piotr
A. Land-Use/Zoning (GIS) – Steven
B. Demographics + Population Density (GIS) – Steven
C.0.1 Figure/Ground – City Scale – Paula
C.0.2 Figure/Ground – Blocks Scale – Michael
C.1 Public (Plazas/Major Buildings) – JT
C.2 Institutional (Schools/Education/Cultural) – Grace/Xing
C.3 Landscapes (Parks/Green/Water/Infrastructural) – JJ
C.4 Vacant Lots – Sofia
Suburbs will work independently, but we will all use the same graphic standards as placed in the Dropbox Folder.
Take a look at what JJ and I came up with for the templates and let us know if you think they need changes. They are located in the studio Dropbox Folder created by Paula.
All plots to be 24×36 portrait.
We chose (4) scales which you can see in the autoCAD layout tabs (the position/size is set, so all of our maps are the same: do not alter layout pages):
1. 1:200,000 – counties
2. 1:50,000 – city scale
3. 1:15,000 – huntley scale
4. 1:7,500 – downtown/riverside scale
We propose the map area graphic to be a hatch because of the simplicity and graphic coherence with a solid figure ground drawing, you can see an example hatch/scale in the autoCAD file. We propose to use orange dots in the diagrams as can be seen in the indesign file.
Perhaps we should meet sometime late Sunday evening to review the work in progress just to make sure everything is in order, and we can make minor changes accordingly before Monday. How about 7:00 pm on Sunday? If you cannot make it, please upload the files to the Dropbox so we can review it anyways.
Also, should we plan to have all files uploaded by 9:00 a.m. on Monday morning because we will be plotting a lot of sheets, which will take some time. Does someone want to coordinate the plotting effort (I have class from 10:00-12:40 on that morning)?
