I've been charged with creating maps for a document concerning Ecological Land Classification. The final product will probably be produced on a letter size page.The mapping will be done at an ecodistrict level but will show lower level ecosections, forest communities, watersheds, geology, soils, etc. My problem arises where a couple of ecodistricts have an unusual shape. In one case the ecodistrict stretches 200 kilometers but is only about 10 kilometers wide.
I'm looking for some cartographic advice so that I can map the ecodistrict and the user will be able to get something out of it. I'm thinking I might clip the Ecodistrict into chunks and display in several figures (west, central, eastern) at a scale that makes sense.
Basically I'm just asking for advice on how others have dealt with or would tackle a similar situation.
Thanks in advance,
