I've spent a lot of time thinking which softwares could help me drawing a map that reminds me AD&D second edition cartography, remember?
The solution was to use programs that I use for my work.
Fractal Terrains: to deisgn world map
Photoshop: giving right colors and modify spcific areas
Illustrator: drawing cities, trees&forests, rivers, roads and fonts
Flash: give interaction to the map giving popup description to diferent areas.
Well, here a map screenshot
And this is the interactive map (2MB):
note: map is a Flash, if you right click on it you can Zoom In multiple times and view details.
I suggest to mouse over on Atlaia, Caradull... and popup wil appear. Sorry, I know is only in Italian.
If you click and drag LEGENDA you can use KM distance like a ruler.
Coments are welcome!
Very creative! It shows a great deal of creativity and ingenuity and a great use of resources. I like the little pics in the popups.
Very, very nice. .....and Flash steps up LOL!
My god, that's beautiful.
That has to be one of the best maps I've seen in a long time.
