I'm working on a map, in Adobe Illustrator, for road cyclists in the hilly part of The Netherlands (waits for the laughter to die down...)
So for a number of hills I calculated the gradient along % short segments of the route and I'm struggling a bit with how to display that. I'm using MAPublisher to style based on the gradient %, in 5% increments
Left is without end caps, center is with round end caps, right is with square end caps. Neither of those looks visually appealing to be honest.
I've now created Voronoi polygons for the centerpoints of my segments then clipped them to a buffer, all with FME, yielding this result:
Works for now, but I was wondering if there's a way to achieve the same look with just Illustrator (and preferably while retaining MAPublisher attributes).
