View Full Version : Political and Physical Map of Renakhna, Etarek (Atlas Style)

Here's my first regional map for my world building project, Etarek. It follows on from this map (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?16568-A-Physical-map-of-Etarek-(Atlas-Style)&highlight=etarek) and this map (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?17009-Political-Map-of-Etarek-(Atlas-Style)&highlight=etarek), which I am likely to re-draw in better projections soon.

I plan on creating maps like these for the whole world, so I can eventually create a full atlas of the planet.

All comments and criticisms are welcome. I want to know how it can be improved.

That is very nice...very crisp and clean. The stroke around the sea levels throws me off a bit. It seems off compared to the rest of the map. A couple of the nation borders seem a little wonky to me too...in particular near the city of Khalon where the three nations meet. Very nice overall though...I look forward to seeing more!

It's nice to see a conic projection (Equidistant Conic?). It might be worth adding a bit more metadata to the map. Specify the projection, give a date, identify the cartographer or agency who created it, what sources were used, and so on. A legend explaining the political symbology would be good too. As it's part of a set, some of that might be on a separate page.

WOW! This is so crisp! Great use of color.

That's a little picky isn't it? In my opinion it's really good, I prefer pen and paper style maps, but I was looking for an atlas and I think the OP has done a brilliant job.
