    AND FINALLY. FINALLY, after years of research, I finally figure how to create a topographic shadow made by my pre-existant topographic files in Illustrator.
    (all tutorials I've found were about creating from scratch)

    Please do share that technique with us, Nathan. I, and I'm sure many others with me, have been looking for the exact same thing! And I must say, your result is amazing!
    I hope it too

    Added eliopy (administrative subdivision) names
    Changed size of cities symbol in proportion of their population

    I also added major provincial roads and I wonder if it's usefull and/or interesting to put their "number" on the map.
    What do you think ?

    With ?

    Or Without ?

    Very light difference I agree. But I can't make my mind.

    I'd say "with" In my opinion, this type of map benefits from all detail you can possibly cram into it. Oh, and it looks midblowingly amazing, by the way

    The road numbers are not overwhelming and they should be pretty useful on a modern map.

    Definitely "with"! You managed the labels very well, so if you can, do it!

    A modern road map would have the road identification, always, but would probably tone down everything else (I'm thinking water courses mainly, imho you have too many and too visible for a road map). A general geography map, on the other hand would probably do without.
    So, what I'm trying to say is that it looks good both ways, but it's a call you cannot avoid taking about what kind of map you are creating.

    And also, did you think about adding some letters to those numbers. Modern road systems have different kind of roads with letters added to the identification.. A-07, N-107-A, R-70, whatever...
