Dave Imus is an award winning and world renowned cartographer based near Eugene, Oregon.
He's the artist behind The Essential Geography of the United States, which is widely considered the best paper map of the US that's ever been produced. Dave and I sat down to talk about his background and inspiration as a mapmaker, his work process, the heritage behind his cartographic style, and the importance of strong geographic literacy.
