Time to plan spring updates to tourism maps

Does your city or region have a visitor guide to attract tourists and show residents what’s going on in your area?

Many municipalities and tourism marketing organizations update maps every year or two. If you want your maps ready for spring, now’s the time to start planning.

Some examples of tourism maps from last year: for a brochure, a tourism kiosk, and a wayfinding sign.
