Hi, this is a the mapp of a game I play on facebook - Kingdoms of Camelot.

Ps. Ignore the numbers :)

How would I go about making a map similar to that. I think it's called a perspective map.

I would also need to create building similar to them aswell. Like the image below.

Thanks for your help, again. I hope that if I mange to get some help, I can show you all how it went :)

This style is called isometric. It is commonly used for computer gaming and pixelart.

The easiest way to create such a "map" (image?) is to start with the propper isometric grid and then use isometric clip-art (of which there is a fairly large amount on the net, mainly due to the proliferation of sim-xxx games that used such art).

The hard way to do it is to draw it all from scratch, in the isometric view.

A somewhat middle of the road approach is to make it in a 3d modeling program and render it using isometric perspective.

Hope that helps.
