Pacific Northwest Volcanos

This weeks assignment was to create a map of the volcanoes throughout the northwest US.  We were given a dataset consisting of roads, volcanoes, counties, rivers, and cities.

The idea was to take the volcanoes and make them appear larger or smaller, depending on the known eruptions it has had.  Also each county is color coded by population.  Lastly an inset map is shown due to the fact that it isn't exactly clear where exactly we are zoomed in on, as the northwest could possibly include part of California in some peoples minds.
