Save the Dunes is requesting proposals for GIS work and the creation and printing of 10-15 maps. The project includes combining and cleaning up several shapefiles into a single file geodatabase, digitizing polygon data from two hard copy maps into the file geodatabase, and adding additional layers with updated and pertinent data that will be provided by Save the Dunes. Using these data, 10-15 maps will be produced to highlight different municipalities within the project area. All maps will be printed in full color. Maps will be used in stakeholder meetings and therefore should be a portable and manageable size. Additional maps may be requested in the future. Provide unit price for printing additional maps.
