    Map My First Attempt

    Hi, This is my first attempt at a map. The map is entirely fictional made with Gimp and InkScape.
    Although this is a very basic map, I found it very difficult and this is the result of about 30 hours of work.
    I would welcome criticism and in particular I have some questions that may well be answered somewhere else on this forum , but I have not yet found the answers to.
    Is there a standard colour chart for elevation and features.
    Is there a font for mapping symbols.
    Is there some easy way to shade mountains (my attempt here is a filter/render/noise adaptation, not very scientific)
    Is there a tutorial on how to to calculate scales on projections on maps

    Cheers Surveyor
