I like....

......very much these maps. Simple and clear, avoiding to reproduce maps too much detailed that you can find in Internet or copying by scanner.

Did you already explain in the past, how make a similar map ?

Re: I like....

I did somewhere, but I'm happy to repeat it to you :-)



First I take the original map - a bitmap with all details etc. Rescale it to 640x??? pixels. Then I copy that bitmap into Powerpoint. Over it I draw all this, what you see here. It's quick and simple, you only need some skills which details to take first. Then I delete the original map. In Powerpoint it's easy to enlarge or reduce the map to cca 640 pixels. When I have it, I use SnagIt - it's a shareware, which enables you to take a part of your screen - the respective 640x??? pixels. Copy-paste into a drawing program (in my case Photo Paint) and save it there as .jpg file. So it stays sharp, which is most important.



Cheers!
