    Aside from the river issues Hai-Etlik mentioned, this is a great map for a first attempt. The terrain agrees pretty well with what I would expect from a landscape at this scale. I also like that it...

    It looks pretty good so far. Most of what I have to say is based off the assumption that the scale of the map is pretty big - after all, you have islands big enough to have towns on them, major...

    What kind of projection is that 2D map? The majority of map projections (especially ones that are rectangles and not some weird shape) stretch the pole out along one or more edges, so it's pretty...

    Here, finally, is the first map I started since joining the Guild. I started working on it a few weeks ago, and with the completion of lettering it is ready to post as a finished map. The map was...

    Learning from more experienced cartographers is what we all do! Including the experienced cartographers themselves! Yeah, when I first stumbled across this site, I was awed. Friendly advice: get...

    All lettering/pasting/compressing is finished, and the completed map is now here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/finished-maps/26069-edelu.html).

    SVG stands for "Scalable Vector Graphics." All objects in an SVG file (except embedded raster images) are defined by mathematical formulae, so they not only have high scalability, they have...

    After some more coding today, the results are promising. It works with SVGs, not raster images, so you can have perfect scalability and do the fractal-y stuff down to whatever level you want....

    You appear to be my muse for these programming endeavors, because when I woke up this morning I had an idea for a way to fractalize a shape defined by the user. I'm just getting started on it now, so...

    Something I just noticed about the rivers: All of the rivers taper and lose width as they approach the ocean. Rivers collect more water as channels and tributaries, including little creeks or brooks...

    And BLAM! The drawing is done! Now I've got to do the lettering... that shouldn't take long in Inkscape.

    Oh, nice! I like the change from the hard water lines to the blurred ones. Makes it stand out less while still giving a clear sense of where the shallow water is. Also, the forest has vastly...

    Alright, here's the upper shore and the last bit of the sea you'll see for awhile. This is the newly stroked coast. I'm also redoing the coast rings because they were also badly blurred in the...

    Next two sections done, and I think I have done about 60 percent of the mountains (goodness me they are both fun and time-consuming to draw).
