    Default October Entry: Quirky Cleveland

    Well, it's been a while since I've participated in a challenge and this one has peaked my interest. I'm going to make a map of my hometown Cleveland, Ohio (yes, the mistake on the lake). My map is going to focus on the quirky/weird locations scattered throughout the greater Cleveland metropolitan area. Here are some interesting locations, just to name a few...

    • The world's largest rubber stamp
    • The Polka Hall of Fame and Museum
    • Ralphie's house from the movie "A Christmas Story", now a museum/gift shop
    • The Superman house, the house where Jerry Siegel lived when he created Superman
    • The Dittrick Museum of Medical History, home to the world's largest collection of prophylactic devices


    This map is in the very initial stages and probably won't end up looking anything like this...

    I made some decent progress this afternoon. It's at least starting to look like something now.

    The title is great.

    That's already a great map! If I ever wind up in Cleveland I'll use your map

    Got a few more streets labeled and tweaked a couple of other things. I'm not sure if I'm going to label too many more streets because i think it might just clutter the map. The most important streets are labeled. Also saved this at full resolution, though i think it looks better at 50%.
