Map Description:

The intent of this map was to create a unique and fun look at active and abandoned Railroads in Southern NJ. Four days were spent (day light hours) driving around taking panoramas and GPSing, covering a good portion of southern New Jersey. I learned that there were many railroads that were local to where I live. Existing photos that I found were not interesting to look at. Typically you could notice that trees are younger, or ground is level from the rail bed. In the end, I only used cool photos with something rail related in them.
