    Thanks a ton! When I get the time I'll try to translate your method to PS.

    I'd be very thankful! Especially about the Wilbur part as I gave the program a short try and closed it early after being overwhelmed

    No problem, I'm guessing PS has a similar feature but, as I'm not familiar with the program, I'm afraid I couldn't tell you how to do it.

    I'd love to see a tut; I'm always interested in other folks' work-flow, etc. Plus, I'm kind of overwhelmed by Wilbur, and having some rough map (hah!) to follow to get started would really help.

    I'll put in a 3rd for the Wilbur part. I think most of us experienced mappers understand the concepts and steps of the raster program parts. You might start out with how you set up your height map to import into Wilbur, then what things you tweak in Wilbur and why you tweak them, and what other settings produce. After that you can go over the raster steps briefly. This would be a tut not for beginners, for sure. You might be giving away the farm by showing the world how you do things so if you're concerned about keeping secrets then keep them secret. On the other hand most of the less-experienced people will get lost trying to follow it and you may end up with a million questions about tiny little things and great big things that people don't read properly. I get them all the time.

    Yeah that's another thing I'm worried about: while I fully intend to remain an active member of the community while I'm in my PhD, I doubt I'll have the time to respond to the questions I'm sure to receive on a tutorial like this. But you make a good point: since this is really a tutorial geared at more experienced mappers I can just state that outright and direct new-comers to more introductory tutorials. Alright, I'm going to do it. Course I expect it could take a while to complete given all that I'm currently working on. Thanks for the feedback everyone.

    Cheers,

    Once some of us have had enough time to sink our teeth into and it replicate it a few times we'll be able to answer questions for ya in your absence. BTW, PhD in what? I got my MA in psychology.

    That would be great. As to your question, my PhD is in Philosophy, more particularly, in Ethics. My dissertation will be exploring if a ready disposition to forgive ought to be considered a virtue. While probably most people would consider this easily answered in the affirmative, there are some important reasons for thinking perhaps the answer is no. I will try to defend the common sense notion and show how such a disposition fits in alongside other standard virtues (e.g. courage, charity, honesty etc) in enabling humans to engage in a well lived life. I have a friend who just finished her PsyD (think that's the right acronym but I could be mistaken) so I'm somewhat familiar with the field from our conversations. What area of psychology are/were you interested in?

    On another note, I've been finding it harder and harder to get time to work on the map, but I did experiment around with a title and the regional name typography. I may change things up later though.

    Cheers,

    Wow, this looks great, I especially like the mountainranges. Typografy is really nice too.

    I remember when PsyD was new and the establishment was trying to prevent it from becoming something because it was going to intrude upon their turf. Psychiatrists look down their noses at psychologists, psychologists think their is more to mental health than just handing out medications, and both were trying to prevent the PsyDs from coming in. My focus was in bereavement, death of a loved one, but in group therapy for various other things I practiced a cognitive-behavioral approach which most folks don't take to too well since it's rather in your face and challenging (most folks don't want to be challenged, they want to hide behind their excuses and keep on doing what they're doing that put them in the place that they are - work and change are hard, it's easy to do nothing and complain about it). My thesis was completely unrelated - it was on enhancing creativity. So my schooling/training was rather all over the map and not really codified into anything and since the only jobs available at the time were in child psych I got out of it and went back to art for a career. My minor was in philosophy but that's also all over the map.

    As for the labels, they might be too big but that depends on how much other info you're going to put in...but they look good so far.

    Love the look of this map. Any tips or tricks would be appreciated. However, I too know the time constraints that limit the amount of work we can contribute to our hobbies and/or side careers.

    Good luck with the re-locate. I await any tidbits to this map.
