    I feel envy. Seriously. How do you do all that? That question is rhetorical. It's going to be easier to just eat your brain and get your skills that way.

    Well, the intro to QGIS tutorial covers some of it, and I do intend to get back to it after this contest.

    really cool, QGIS eh? I'll have to check it out!

    I think the "non-canadian borders" should be done in something other than hatching.. even just shading would look better to me, simple because it ruins all your pretty symbols... other then that.. making THAT map from GIS software? freaking brilliant..

    and Canada has far more trees... remember we live mainly in the southern like 10% of our country.. the rest? well... trees.

    Looking bloody spectacular. I'm just wondering though whether the grassy symbol is a bit big compared to the tree symbols?

    A few more labels, the Greenland ice cap, and a legend.

    I'm feeling pretty happy with it now, though I have my doubts about how I'll fair against Diamond and DJ.

    Fixed a couple of minor glitches and made the boreal forest symbols a bit more sparse to make it easier to distinguish from the temperate conifer forest.

    To save space, it's in indexed colour mode with only 8 colours. That seems to be plenty for antialiasing.

    Durnit, that looks awesome. Meaning that I am in awe.

    Maybe some of those northern rivers look a bit fat, but I have no idea how big they really are. They look plenty huge. Anyway, back to the kow-towing and saying I'm going to have to learn how to do stuff like this. Soonly, I hope.

    O.o

    The Mackenzie and Yukon really are huge river systems. The Mackenzie-Peace-Finlay system is second only to the Mississippi-Missouri system in North America in terms of length, drainage area, and discharge. They aren't to scale though, the width is just a visual indication of the relative size of the rivers.
