Iqaluit is the capital of Nunavut–the largest, northernmost and newest territory of Canada. One of the major problems a visitor encounters upon arrival is the proliferation of colloquial names used to identify the different areas of the town. Street names are not referred to, and the existing maps are vague. In this trifold wayfinding map a variety of techniques are used to quickly convey essential information, including many features not found on previous maps. These include the indication of altitude in various shades of green; snowmobile trails in blue; building typology in a variety of pastel colours; and ranges of building numbers. This map is intended not to replace the current map found in the visitor’s guide, but rather act as a complement.
