The Power of Visuals

I am so super excited about this that I couldn’t wait to post it. Couldn’t even write much about it, I was just so anxious to show it off. Once you see it, you’ll know why this is so exciting. I’ve created a map of the California ocean piers which will be part of my Into The Ocean project. This map is a powerful visual of the amount of piers in the state and also of my progress in documenting them.

So, here it is, my work-in-progress map!

Now you see what I mean with the phrase the power of visuals. I can tell you that there are more than thirty ocean piers off the coast of California and that most of them are located in the southern portion of the state, but when you see this map, you get a MUCH better idea of what I mean. You also get a better idea of how much more work I have left! FYI, this map isn’t complete yet, I’ve only made it north as far as San Francisco, but I was so excited I couldn’t help myself.
