ABSTRACT: Creating accurate and aesthetically pleasing maps for Chilean national parks and open space like Torres del Paine NP, Peninsula Brunswick and Tierra del Fuego, Chile -Argentina is not only a way to promote tourism and financing for these projects, but also supports small local businesses close to the parks.  It is also a way to properly manage the space and visitors in the region.  Attracting visitors away from the overutilized areas to lower use areas provide more opportunities and helps manage growing tourism.   Visualizing land ownership, land-cover, hydrography, infrastructure and imagery utilizing GIS is a way for both local and regional government to properly manage these resources.
