LDS missionaries make map of Patzicia, Guatemala

Making a map of Patzicía to help missionary work and to donate to the Mayor. We traced an old aereal photo onto onion skin paper to get the right dimensions. We then walked every street and updated it to the current status, measuring new buildings and streets. Here is a photo of the map we made (15 hours drawing time). We made 2 more copies by hand (8 hours) and presented a copy to the mayor.
