Okay, so I have another map that I did up, and decided to place up for perusal and comment.   This is a map of Utopia that is based upon a historical map.   This is not a complete, exact, or perfect map by any stretch.  Many of the labels are not yet included, and I'm pretty sure I botched some of them.  Time will hopefully allow me to improve it.

 

Okay, the above are maps I did in CC3.  (Clicking on them should bring you to a larger version, clicking again a larger still version.  Be warned the full versions are over 1 MB in size.)

It's actually the same map.   The one on the left (or top depending upon your resolution), is the raw map.  The one on the right (or bottom), I turned on the effects.   I'm a little torn as to which one I prefer.  There are some things I like better about each.

As always time is a limiting factor.  Labels for all the rivers need to be added, and some more custom symbols crafted.  And the one custom symbol I did make could stand some improvement.   In the meantime, I'm pleased.

One of my hobbies obsessions is cartography.   Especially, imaginary cartography.  It might have started with the map included with The Hobbit  that I read first in third grade.   But I sort of doubt it.  I've always been fascinated with maps.  I'm also a rather good geography buff, spending hours with many a globe or atlas.   

I'm certain that fantasy literature's tendency to include maps within books only added fuel to that fire many years ago.

All of that was a very long-winded introduction to a map I created, and just wanted to show off.  This thumbnail should enable you to get to the larger version.   If you want to get to the much larger version, I think you double click on that version again.   But be warned the much larger version is about 1.7 MB.   And is set for screen size off most monitor sized scales.   That's to allow me to see the finer details.





















*The map above was created with both CC3, and the Annual, an add on to enable a user to have even more style sets with which to make their map.  This style set is based upon the historical style of maps by Mercator and his contemporaries during that early part of the "Age of Exploration."
