    Wip July / August 2012 Lite Challenge Entry: Another Stereographic Hemisphere Map

    Well, I noticed that the given shape appears to be a Plate Carree projection of a spherical fractal height field that has been thresholded. Plate Carree is of course, rather ugly and not particularly suitable for general maps, so I georeferenced it, vectorized it, and cleaned it up manually (which was a fair bit of work, especially as it was fairly low res to start) and then tried playing around with it. I think I've settled on doing another stereographic hemisphere map.

    I may or may not have time this month to give this the attention it deserves but we'll see where it goes.

    PS: Sorry, I forgot to include the contest stuff in the title. Could a mod fix that?

    nice idea using the base map as a projection. nice clean starty, almost seems a shame to add the colours

    I'm pretty sure it is a projected spherical map to begin with. This wouldn't have worked out right otherwise.

    It looks a lot nicer in the stereographic projection than in the Plate Carree.

    Sorry, it's been a busy month so I haven't gotten anything done on this map. I do have a new job and a new (to me) car though so I don't feel too bad about withdrawing. If anyone wants to play with what I've posted, feel free.

    A pity you couldn't finish this as the first WIP looks so neat and professional.
