    Post Traverse map (side scroll)

    The idea here is such:

    Imagine a scroll of regular paper height, but ten feet long. The scroll has one wooden rod on each end for the scroll to wrap around. This scroll when unrolled depicts a journey from location to destination accompanied by key landmarks and points of interest along the way. A side'scroller' if you will.

    Cheers,
    Cuin

    This idea was inspired by a map I saw in a museum many years ago. I could not find exactly what I had seen on exhibit, but I found this example, which similarly depicts a common route. In this case from Edo to Nagasaki (ca. 1720).

    Mapping a journey has been already done in a challenge.

    Explicitly the idea isn't so much about mapping a journey, but mapping in profile view (side scroller type) opposed to the traditional map view (bird's eye).
    I see now the thread for the journey challenge, but all of these maps are in map view.

    A traverse map is most natural for a journey, but is not restricted to a journey, so I edited the title of this post. This challenge is intended to work a skill set of landscapes applied to mapping. I can't find any examples of this, but if it has been done can somebody provide the link?

    Cheers,

    You mean an itinerary, with point A to point X with everything interesting and important between the two, in a long panoramic or elevation drawing layout? That sounds like an excellently wonderful challenge to participate in!
