This series is inspired by a lesser known map by Charles Minard. To enhance experience across the landscape, I emphasized physical features with handdrawn hachuring. I also used minimal linework and coloring. I used Natural Earth for my base data and a Human Rights Watch Report for the stories. I compiled the base data in QGIS. I created the water line hachuring using pen and mylar. I then combined and stylized the stories with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
These maps are part of larger project titled, Human trafficking in Sudan and Egypt: Mapping traumatic experience through multiple lenses. See my AAG abstract for more about this project here.
