Dominican Republic and Haiti Travel Reference Map 5th Ed. 2011 1:350,000/400,000 on waterproof ITM paper. This map has been a difficult update, coming in the midst of the turmoil in Haiti caused by the earthquake in the spring of 2010. This is actually two separate maps sharing a single sheet of paper. The Dom Rep side was fairly straight-forward to update, as there has been little change, but the Haiti side needed a lot of time and energy.
The earthquake revealed a previously unrealized reality – nobody had any information on Haiti. Our map was the only one in existence, and it proved to be too weak to meet the needs of humanitarian groups. They, however, provided a wealth of useful information as they reached out to isolated villages about road conditions, spelling of place names, and actual locations, which we have added to our artwork.
This is a work in progress, so don’t expect perfection, but this map is far better than anything anyone has ever done for this country previously. We also have a vastly improved inset map of Port-au-Prince, the capital. Double-sided, printed on plastic.
