So after a week's worth of summer vacation followed by a week and a half of summer classes, I *finally* got back into the fine art of cartography. This is an updated/test map of a continent I posted previously but never really finished. It's different enough (and it's been so long) I decided to upload in a new thread. While I like the satellite feel of this map, I'm not sure I'll keep it up unless I can get more precision control over the landforms. Mostly I just don't like the mountain ranges - placement is fine, but elevation and shape are off for the most part. Any ideas on where to find DEMs already converted into something Photoshop can handle would be greatly appreciated - I cannot for the life of me figure out PullSTDS or how to extract DEMs from the 10+ (exaggeration?) DEM sites I've found.
