Your font selection is perfect. Have more confidence!
It reminds me of older hand drawn blueprints, the ones where the drafters had impeccable handwriting, but you could still tell it was made by hand.
Wow, i haven't looked your thread for a few days and i can see the map is getting better and better! The way you sugest buildings in a very subtle way is awesome, and your labels are starting really well so far. I can feel you'l have a lot of work on that if you want to name all streets
Thanks a lot bleedscarlet! I'm confident about my tastes but I'm always wondering about my maps are easy to use/read or not. And I'm very confident in the fact that the guild is of precious help .
Yep, that's my intent. I just came back from holidays (btw, I was in Parthenay for the FLIP, not so far from your home isn't it?). So I'm gonna start the labelling again soon.By Francissimo

This is fantastic work. One tiny quibble: it's Caltech, not Cal Tech. They tend to be very particular about that.
Ha! Thanks Ares96, for the kind words and for the precision. I'll fix that
The map is huge, so I'm probably let a few streets without labels... and I'm gonna use repeated labels (as below, left part mainly) to clarify the reading. I just hope it's won't be too crowded in the end... I'll show the upper-left quarter when finished.
Where are you getting your neighbourhood boundaries from? The Los Angeles Times has some fairly authoritative ones as part of their project Mapping L.A. which I tend to use. Plus, they get a bit more detailed than the ones you've got.
Also, are you adding the Metro to the map?
