Winter sports go way back in Entlebuch, Switzerland's first UNESCO biosphere reserve. The new permanent exhibition at the Entlebucherhaus, the local museum, offers an impressive look at the history of winter tourism in the area. It's focused on objects from the museum's collection. As a backdrop I designed and painted a 7m x 3.3m panoramic map showing all contemporary and historic facilities. Samuel's work involved research, modelling terrain and mapping data, designing look and feel, processing feedback, setting up the projection and finally painting the final design.

Overview and details of the final design.
A very elaborated design sketch mapped on to the wall.
Visualizations of different design approaches helped to arrive at the desired look and feel
"When I mapped the final design on to the picture of the empty wall in Photoshop, it felt as if it was already there, the paint dry and the work already done. All that was needed was a human plotter - me." Samuel J. Bucheli
