Muscongus Bay Atlas
By Jennifer Atkinson and Stephen Engle, Quebec-Labrador Foundation
The Muscongus Bay Atlas provides an entirely new perspective on this "small boat bay" region of Mid-coast, Maine. It is an informative and thought-provoking look at the natural environment and human uses of a relatively remarkable yet rarely celebrated part of the coast. Designed for people who want to learn more about this area, as well as for those who just love maps, its 23 original maps are comprised of over 150 GIS data layers (85 of which were co-created with the community). Together these illustrations provide a compelling visual explanation of this place while evoking the possibility of more deliberate regional thinking and action.
