New for 2009: More roads and a revised event layout

ASSIGNMENT:
The combination of Woodstock-like camping, an exhibitor trade area and live air shows make for some wayfinding challenges that could be best served with an illustrated map. Additional issues to consider were parking, campsites and locations of food, baths and service buildings across acres of flat fields and forest that had limited field of vision. A multi-layered illustration was created by using field observation, staff direction and extensive aerial photogaphy to make all of the destinations easier to understand. Specific colors were coordinated with newly installed wayfinding towers.
