Harvard Square

We came out with the first edition of our map of Harvard University and the surrounding area fourteen years ago, and it's been a great seller for us ever since. Not long after, the Harvard Square Business Association asked if we would make a new map of the Square for them. So we did. We've made a new edition of map every year or so since then. The newest edition is out now, and available at various Harvard Square locations. You can also view it online at www.harvardsquare.com. We also offer it through our web store as a wall map.

Three New Editions: Twin Cities Metro, Northern Minnesota, Iowa City

They just arrived from the printer! New editions of three of our laminate titles:

Twin Cities Metro Area
has been thoroughly updated and field-checked, including the new alignments of US 12, US 212 and MN 36. We've revised all the point of interest and hotel locations, and noted (with a sigh) the loss of a handful of par-3 golf courses.

Northern Minnesota is the first major overhaul in 3 years, and reflects changes in all of its many maps, both city and regional.

Finally, University of Iowa and Iowa City includes new campus buildings and notes the closures due to the 2008 floods (for up-to-the-minute information, see www.iowa.edu/floodrecovery). On the other side, a thorough revision of local streets, including the new Coralville riverfront development, is shown.

Edina and St Louis Park Bike Map

We've been busy, and now we need to catch up on our blog entries!

First up, the Edina and St Louis Park Bike Map is the second Minnehaha Media title, focusing on trails and street routes in those two Minneapolis suburbs and surrounding areas. It shows clearly how to access the Grand Rounds in Minneapolis, including the Chain of Lakes parks, and also the Cedar Lake Trail/Southwest LRT Trail loop through St Louis Park and Hopkins. It includes mileages both on trails and on approach roads.

The map is available free from our sponsors and other locations in the area, or for purchase in quantity from us. Single copies are also available from us for purchase if you are unable to get to one of the free distribution points. Finally, wall versions of the map are available in two sizes: 24 x 36" and 36 x 54".

We plan on more of our free-distribution titles in the coming months. Watch this space, or better yet contact us for more information, or to tell us your idea for a map project supported by your organization!
