    Info Cartography-Related Tools List

    [My 150th Post!]

    Hey guys,

    ORBIS <-- Cool travel-map, found this thanks to Maezar
    Fantasy Name Generator <-- For names of places and things
    Colorbrewer: Color Advice for Maps <-- Neat tool to explore, good if you want different countries or boundaries.
    TypeBrewer <-- Typestyle can really affect Maps
    A Periodic Table of Visualization Methods <-- If you need to show information on your map and need a format to do it.
    RANDOM.ORG - Geographic Coordinates <-- Great for brainstorming map places & ideas (more often than not, it’ll be water though) <-- Random street view, helpful for inspiration especially with modern maps. Also shows cultural differences (architecture) and land differences between geographical location.

    I’m sure theres more (and perhaps there’s already a thread about mapping tools, I searched and didn’t find anything so I went ahead and made one). If you have some favorite tools to share, drop a link!

    The best maps are the ones we like the most after looking at the longest.
