The main intention of this project is to provide tourists a more laid back way to locate themselves in the urban space of the city of Caldas Novas (GO). There was research done to find out if the city as a touristic monopoly had this kind of artifice, and it was concluded that it doesn’t, thus the development of this project. For that reason the pictorial map was elaborated by the author and drawn by the cartoonist Leandro Rodrigues Faria, who developed the project based on what was previously planned. Therefore it was necessary to analyze and clarify what a pictorial map is, what it’s for, and the historical importance of thematic maps, in addition of demonstrating the importance of maps to people who don’t know the city that they are visiting, in this case Caldas Novas (GO). Because the layout of the city of Caldas Novas (GO) is very extensive and heterogenous, it was necessary to make a selection of the places that’d be cartooned. The places, once chosen, were the clubs and the most visited places by tourists in the area with the highest flux of visitors in the urban extent. The project also has a brief historical update of the city and modern pictures, that being so, making the constant modifications that the city encounters continuously, public. Lastly, approaching the finalization of the touristic pictorial map of the city of Caldas Novas (GO) that was developed.
