Hello to all,

It's my first post, my first map, I am curious of your impressions. Feel free to criticise if you don't like something.

Thank you for your opinions.

Hello Rafal,

That is one impressive looking map. Can you tell us a bit more on how it was produced?

Sure.

Two different dems, one for rocks and second for the rest. Two different color schemes for both and Manifold my good friend.

Vector works overlapped in Illustrator.

Hello Rafal!

Nice map. You have probablly used two different resolution DEMs. One for general hillshading and another more detailed for rock hillshade. Am I right?

It was necessary to use two different dems. I had very detailed dem for whole area, but with poor rocks. So I had to add rocks from somewhere else. I used contour lines from ortophoto.

So, summa sumarum, it's vice-versa, very detailed dem for whole area and so-so for rocks.

Very nice map. One thing I would change is the text. It's hard to see the black labels in locations where shading is very dark. Other than that, looks great.

In Polish:

Czesc Rafal. Mapa jest super. Ja widzialem mapy o Rysach ale ta to jest 10 razy lepsza. Tylko te napisy bym zmienij gdzie jest tak ciemno rzeby je bylo widac.

Hmm, you say text ? I will see how the print proofs will go.

I must say that when I print it on my printer they are very good visible. That jpeg cheats a little.
For the text on the rocks I used a halo around the letters to improve the legilibity. I will see how the proofs will go and maybe then I add the halo.

Dzieki. Mam nadzieje ze ludzie beda ja kupowac :)

Very nice Rafal. Text looks good. I especially like the rock & dem interlace.

How much area does the final map cover and who is publishing it?

Excellent! I like the color of the rocks a lot. I agree with Beaver the names are hard to read on the dark spots but then again I find all Polish words hard to read.

The map wil cover whole Polish part of Tatra. It's circa 175 sq km.

Who is publishing ? Me :) I was making something for the others all the time, now it's time to publish something for me. I hope everything will go OK.

No I'm not. But I think that we have met in Bohinj last year on ICC Mountain Cartographic Workshop. I was presenting some VNS based natural looking mapping approach. If you are the right Rafal (I don't know any other) then I've also drove you back in Kamnik.

wow. Very nice. I usually use Lidar data for my hillshades and usually wind up down sampling them. I've never thought to combine the the lower res version with the high res version in selected areas, so thanks for the "ah ha" moment that you've just given me!

One small thing that my admittedly untrained eyes noticed: the lakes layer looks like it is below the green lowland tints, which is giving ... hmm... is it "Morskie Oko" (?) a strange algae bloom color.
