*** September Challenge - What is your Style? ***
In this month's challenge we are looking for individual styles of mapping. The challenge is to draw a regional map of part of a coastline and to bring your own mapping style to the table. We would particularly like to encourage people who have not taken part in a monthly challenge before to enter. Entering a challenge is a good way to improve your mapping skills as you have a deadline to work to - you will be able to get a lot of advice (bidden and unbidden) from other members of the guild!
We have produced a map attached below which could use some improvement (it was drawn by RobA after all). Your challenge is to translate the attached map into your very own style. Change the colours, symbols and text and make this map your own. Make it 3d, or draw it on paper: intricate or simple - it is up to you.
By way of explanation:
The big magenta hexagon is a city
The small magenta hexagons are towns
The greeny yellow smudges are marshes
The bright green smudges are forests
The pointy lines are mountains
The rounded lines are hills
The blue lines are rivers
North is at about 11 o'clock.
Each edge of the map is 100 miles.
We would like voters to vote for the map which has the most individual style in which all the elements of the map work together to form a pleasing whole. As this contest is about individuality, all contestants should list with their map any elements used which were not created by them.
Final entries to be posted by 25th September.
