Abstract

This project made design improvements and data updates to two maps for Central Washington University(CWU) sustainability website. CWU bicycle map was influenced by other university maps with integrated city and campus bicycle paths that had multi-use lanes. The cartography emphasizes visual hierarchy, legibility of map elements, and accessible color schemes for color blindness. New features added to the bicycle map include: Ellensburg bicycle boulevard, and new paths to CWU campus map. The second map was updated to include fare-free Ellensburg Central Transit service routes because they have been updated since the first edition of the CWU bus map. CWU Central Transit routes bus map was primarily based upon the existing Central Transit route bus map provided by the city. The extent of the Central Transit bus map was zoomed into focus upon the boundary of CWU campus and downtown Ellensburg.
