I am new to cartography and adobe illustrator and I have no idea about writing code or scripts for some map design programs. I am using Google Styled Maps (http://gmaps-samples...zard/index.html) to create an extremely basic city map that when styled shows only roads (as white colour) over a black background. Absolutely nothing else in the map. To create a large city map I am saving dozens of Static Map images as .png's and then stitching them together in illustrator to form a larger area map. Time consuming and frustrating! Can anyone advise of a better way of doing this, if one has no experience/knowledge of more advanced map design software. Is there a simple program I could use?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
