As suggested by a previous admin I would like to map in a BG territory and move onto a larger territory later on

A brief description of the territory demographics, economic development, land occupation, infrastructure and mapping style

Most of the state consists of a lot of farmland (consistent with midwestern USA) with a lot of smaller communities. However the capital city, Oclonia City, would be a metro area with a few suburbs surrounding the city. Oclonia City metro area can be found towards the center of the state. Oclonia City would encourage the use of public transit as well as walking and/or riding bicycles to get around. The public transit bus system would run 24/7 all around the city meanwhile the subway system is somewhat limited.  There is a canal system running through downtown Oclonia City, the canal connects Lake Sauganas and Lake Betaouais. There is also a canal found connecting Lake Seneppi and Lake Sauganash. There would be outside train connections for use when traveling from Swanashaw, Barre Harbor and Varnel (working with neighboring states to get connections made, of course). There will be motorways statewide with the primary motorway running from Marketville through Oclonia City to Varnel. There will also be other motorway connections going from the main motorway to Barre Harbor, as well to connect with a motorway that runs through the state to the southeast (AR120-57). There would be a passenger & freight train line running in near-parallel with the motorways.

To support your request provide links to areas of OGF mapping which showcase your mapping skill. Mapping relevant to the requested theme & geography is especially useful
The {{coord}} template can optionally be used to link to the OGF map - it results in a nice formatted link. Or you can paste in a URL.

recently spent lots of time on making the village of Grand Basin, a small community with a mid-western feel to it.

Grand Basin can be found here:
