I stumbled on this link earlier today while doing some searches for inspiration. Not sure if this stuff has ever been discussed here or not , but I thought I'd share.

http://cartography.oregonstate.edu/software.html

Most of this stuff is over my head, but it is definitely interesting. The "Scree painter" and "Flex Projector" specifically look interesting to me.

I also believe that they are working on a (sortofish) holy grail of mapping....you need to look at the Research tab....Peudo-natural Maps...turm a vector topo map into a textured and shaded map with individual building, differing vegetation and all that....well worth the look at, IMOHO
