Authors

The Atlas of Infectious Diseases was envisioned by a mix of undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in Computer-Assisted Cartography, a course offered through the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) at Oregon State University. The students jointly produced the atlas during the Winter 2014 academic term.

The selection of atlas pages submitted to the NACIS Dynamic Map Competition was created by Brooke E. Marston, James D. Eynard, Olivia Hollenhorst, Lucy F. Romeo, Oregon State University, 2014.

About the Atlas

The Atlas of Infectious Diseases explores new technology for constructing, designing, and formatting an atlas. It combines traditional cartographic tools—ArcGIS, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Photoshop—with interactive features of the iBooks Author application to assemble an educational atlas.
