Hey there Cartographer's Guild!

Over on another forum I'm using V.U.E., a "concept mapping" application, to map out the data in some classic Greyhawk material.

See: Extracting Semantic Data from Classic Modules (http://www.therpgsite.com/showthread.php?t=23418) @ therpgsite.com. Here's an example of a "faction map" from that thread:


I want to distribute my results, but as an artist I didn't want to distribute the map from the module with my material. So I made a new one. Enjoy :)

Great looking map and loving the detail. Cant help but feel the buildings stand out unnecessarily, personally I would have tried to keep them with the same style and then just used a heavy black outline around them to highlight, but that's just me. Clearly a lot of time and love has gone into this map so a commendable job.

Thanks for the feedback Yospeck. The building style was chosen to not get lost behind the bubble-nodes of my Concept Mapping software, VUE. It took a while to get all the data to fit....

I also had to figure out how to deliver the full resolution maps... I am considering releasing the VUE maps (with the meta-data) and the google Spreadsheet I used to create them. Still working on that part, considering sublocation maps (and considering mapping the dungeoon/Moathouse).

See my Google+ post (public post) if you can't see the preview images.

Never played much in Greyhawk myself (though I have some friends that are die-hard fans). But I like how you've mapped this out. It's a great visual aid.
