Bayou Teche Map receives national award and heads to Congress
The Bayou Teche Paddle Trail and Cultural and Historical Map was awarded Best of Category in the Recreational/Travel Map Category at this year's Cartography and Geographic Information Society Map Design Competition held this past spring at Montgomery College, Rockville, Maryland. The map will be entered into Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
The 12"x30" color map is waterproof, with one side depicting the paddle trail and the opposite side focused on the significant cultural and historical aspects of Bayou Teche.
The Louisiana Geological Survey worked with the TECHE Project, a non-profit organization which manages the Bayou Teche Paddle Trail, a US Department of Interior National Water Trail.
Cartographer Lisa Pond and GIS Specialist Robert Paulsell are the award recipients.
