Southern Boating Magazine Article

The article above appears in the February 2016 Issue of Southern Boating Magazine (page 87). The text appears below as well.

“Navigating Miami’s multiple venues is easier when you use a map. If
you’re at Yachts Miami Beach – formerly The Miami Yacht and Brokerage
Show – the man behind those maps is John Potter of Escape Key Graphics (escapekeygraphics.com),
who created his first boat show map for the 201 Fort Lauderdale Int’l.
Boat Show. It wasn’t long before the creative concept spread. Less
intimidating than site plans and more easier to follow than an aerial
photography, Potter’s maps now grace the Stuart Boat Show, St.
Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show in Florida and International Boat
Shows like Newport, Palm Beach and Panama. His work on these shows
frequently extends to many maps such as detailed area maps and transit
maps. Potter’s maps can also be seen beyond the yachting industry in
theme parks, resorts, wildlife sanctuaries, municipalities, campuses and
gardens including Flamingo Gardens, Dinosaur World parks or The Dover
International Speedway.”

Map Keying Methods

 
by John Potter

There are a lot of different ways to key a map and choosing
the right one can be difficult. Different maps and applications can make
one method preferable above others. I’m going to share a little of what
I’ve learned.

I generally try not to repeat numbers or letters if possible. Just
having one number eleven a different color than another, for instance,
still leaves room for confusion. Commonly when a map has categories of
points of interest it’s tempting to number each category starting with
one, but I encourage continuing so that no character repeats.
