    Wip United Island's States (UIS)

    I'd like to re-born a very old map of mine.
    It shows a fictional federal state island, called UIS, placed SE of real Newfoundland.

    I firstly drew this one in the '80s (was it summer 1985?... I don't remember exactly, I was very young) using A4 size sheets, pencils and pens. Then I joined all sheets together with scotch tape, to make a big map: so those dark strips are explained...
    Now I'm using DraftSight to make vector data, then I'll put them in Quantum GIS to have a DEM and a complete map. At last I'll probably use GIMP to refine my work.
    I'll modify some features of the original map, specially contour lines, because they didn't satisfy me.

    These examples show at most one of the six federal states, called New Pantheky, which is placed in the SW peninsula.
    The projection I use is Transverse Mercator WGS84 zone 22N. Each grid square is 10 km wide.

    Actual vector data.

    P.S. Sorry if I make some mistake in english: my mother tongue is italian.
