Atlas Design


The InfoGraphics Lab is a national leader in atlas production and design. The 2001 second edition of the Atlas of Oregon, became a model for modern atlas and thematic map design. The Lab has since published four awarding-winning atlases: Archaeology and Landscape in the Mongolian Altai: An Atlas (Esri Press 2010), and the Atlas of Yellowstone First Edition (UC Press 2012) and Second Edition (UC Press 2022), and Wild Migrations (OSU Press, 2018).

The Lab is continually developing new atlas models for better understanding of geographic regions and their complex cultural-political and physical ecologies, through compilations of integrated thematic maps, other geospatial data visualizations, imagery, and interpretation.
