Module 9: Flowline Mapping

The map this week shows migration statistics for the year 2007. The thickness of the flowlines is proportional to the number of people coming from each region/continent. The inset map of United States shows percentage of immigrant population in each state.

There were two base maps provided for the lecture, and the data came from the U.S. Office of Immigration Statistics. All the work was done in CorelDRAW. This work consisted of drawing the flowlines, setting region/continent colors, setting up background image, adding text, and creating legend for the inset map.
