Map Description:

This map was created to support a grant proposal. The purpose was to show the proximity of educational facilities to child care resources for women attending job training. The challenge was to show which of 7 types of child care are available at each facility. Facilities offered between 1 and 5 different types at their location. To solve this, a color was assigned to each type of child care. Facilities offering only 1 type were represented as a single color-coded circle whereas those with multiples were represented by a 3-D pie chart identifying the different child care types available at that location.
