Map of Canada
I've decided to do a map of Canada focusing mostly on physical geography and aiming for a pen and ink, fantasy novel map type feel. I'll probably go for pure black and white rather then messing around with paper textures and whatnot.
Most of the data is from NaturalEarth. The biome layer is from ConserveOnline, and the mountains were produced by tracing over a shaded relief map from NaturalEarth and don't represent specific peaks.
The projection is Statistics Canada Lambert Conformal Conic
I've set up buffers and masked out the areas I'll be applying biome symbols to.
Next up I need to dig out my stippling code and try to feed this in to get forests.
I'll be continuing this map as an entry in the March Challenge, new thread over here: http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...anada&p=180080
