Hi

I've spent a lot of time thinking which softwares could help me drawing a map that reminds me AD&D second edition cartography, remember?
The solution was to use programs that I use for my work.

Fractal Terrains: to deisgn world map
Photoshop: giving right colors and modify spcific areas
Illustrator: drawing cities, trees&forests, rivers, roads and fonts
Flash: give interaction to the map giving popup description to diferent areas.

Well, here a map screenshot

And this is the interactive map (2MB):

note: map is a Flash, if you right click on it you can Zoom In multiple times and view details.
I suggest to mouse over on Atlaia, Caradull... and popup wil appear. Sorry, I know is only in Italian.
If you click and drag LEGENDA you can use KM distance like a ruler.

Coments are welcome!

Ciao

Very creative! It shows a great deal of creativity and ingenuity and a great use of resources. I like the little pics in the popups.

My god, that's beautiful.

That has to be one of the best maps I've seen in a long time.
