    Wip WIP Mapping with POVRay

    I will post a sequence of maps generated with POVRay to try and illustrate some of the potential of this tool for cartography. For the first one I add a baseline map of the region for the second one I begin to add some detailing.

    I did some similar work with POV-Ray a while back http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...ull=1#post8566

    might provide some additional inspiration. Rather than rendering what looked like a 3d map I was trying to render a 2d map with oblique projected terrain....
