View Full Version : Hand drawn Castle Grounds

I tend to doodle during my lectures, which means the back end of my notebook is filled with random stuff, maps being one of them. I don't usually do anything with them, but this one I rather liked. It's a map of the grounds of the castle 'De Haar' in the Netherlands. It's not 100% correct because I drew it from memory, but I think I came quite close, considering.
I don't have a scanner, so I took a photo of the map and cleaned it up a bit in photoshop. It's still a bit messy, but I think it's all right. Also, I drew on lined paper, which is obviously not the best if you want to digitalize...

These are the grounds as seen with Google maps: (http://maps.google.nl/maps?q=kasteel+de+haar&hl=nl&ll=52.121151,4.987535&spn=0.004229,0.013078&fb=1&gl=nl&hq=kasteel+de+haar&hnear=0x47c66f4339d32d37:0xd6c8fc4c19af4ae9,Utrech t&cid=0,0,9787025623597051096&sqi=2&t=h&z=17&vpsrc=6)

Great to see some hand drawn maps! ... doodling at lectures! You need a wacom inkling! That way you won't have to worry about the lines on the paper (but you may need to worry about your exam results!)
