    Wip July / August 2012 Lite Challenge Entry: Another Stereographic Hemisphere Map

    Well, I noticed that the given shape appears to be a Plate Carree projection of a spherical fractal height field that has been thresholded. Plate Carree is of course, rather ugly and not particularly suitable for general maps, so I georeferenced it, vectorized it, and cleaned it up manually (which was a fair bit of work, especially as it was fairly low res to start) and then tried playing around with it. I think I've settled on doing another stereographic hemisphere map.

    I may or may not have time this month to give this the attention it deserves but we'll see where it goes.

    PS: Sorry, I forgot to include the contest stuff in the title. Could a mod fix that?
