Cartographer and geographer Stefan Freelan will discuss the process for the ‘Salish Sea’ to be recognized as an official name, and the role that the map “The Salish Sea and Surrounding Basin,” played in that process.
Freelan will present a collection of maps to compare, contrast, and discuss alongside the map he created, “The Salish Sea and Surrounding Basin,” as he explores how this map differs from other maps of the area, and talks about the choices and creative process that went into its creation.
