ITMB Buenos Aires & NorthEast Argentina Map 1:12.500 / 1:2.200.000
Description by ITMB: This map was researched on the ground in January, was released in May, and we forgot to send out a press release. Shame on us! Regardless, Buenos Aires is one of the nicest cities in South America, and we are pleased to be issuing our 4th edition of this vibrant city. The most noteworthy comment I can make about changes to the artwork is to note that we have removed several proposed and future rapid transit lines that show no signs of being built in the foreseeable future. This is regrettable, but necessary. A map should present what IS, not what visionaries wish it were. Apart from that, we have updated our presentation to modern standards.
The big change on this map is the replacement of our former regional map with a brand new map of the northeastern portion of Argentina. This new map covers the country between the Iguacu Falls in the far north to Bahia Blanca and Mar del Plata in the south, and Cordoba in the west. Apart from spending two weeks driving thousands of kilometres and trying to note every single toll booth (there are dozens), we found an interesting and different Argentina simply by staying in cities such as Bahia, Santa Rosa, and Rosario. Not only did we meet new friends, but we saw the country through the eyes of people living there, which I think adds a perspective rarely attempted in map making and one that we tried to incorporate on this map. Certainly, the road network has received a tremendous upgrading. The railway lines are shown as points of information only, as the rail system in the country failed many years ago. The new motorway to Santa Fe is shown, as well as the one under construction to Concordia and beyond. Printed double-sided on waterproof paper.
