    Default Hello !!

    Hello !

    I have always been a fan of maps old ones, new ones, as soon as they are very precise and I have to say that all the maps you have done are wonderful. This website is just great.

    I contribute to the French, Spanish and Dutch wikipedia project and I am among the one who make the maps ... I decided to create my own maps with the same software, inkscape.

    Currently, I create a map of a huge planet (I think the size of the planet will be 2 or 3 times earth perimeter). I try to make it really precisely however. This map will show, by the end, the topography of the continent, of the oceans, the cities, roads, volcanoes, glaciers, etc. I hope I will be able to show it to you soon.

    And sorry, my English is not that good !

    Welcome !! That sounds like a very interesting (and ambitious) project. I look forward to seeing it

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    Welcome, Torahn -- I look forward to seeing your maps. And your English is plenty understandable :-).

    Will your era and style be modern or antique?

    Thanks for your warm welcome ! [Sorry, I am a bit busy with the Uni so I have just seen your post ]

    JTougas : yes it is a bit ambitious, so maybe the final map will be less developed than that, but I try to keep this goal in mind .

    Jbgibson : Thanks ! for the map ? as I use inkscape, the result will be something like the .svg maps we can find on wikipedia ... If I find a cheap software, maybe I will try to do something in accordance with the era I want to depict in the map (the style I would like to do is the one of the "Dutch Golden Age"). However, I has also draw, so maybe, when my map on inkscape will be over, I will try to draw it like that ...
