I was wondering should I put it here, but I think many of you will like that map. The moreso it's a pity it's widely unknown, being a part of our history:

It's a winter version map with ski trails and avalanche danger areas. I hope you like it.

Cool map. Thanks for sharing it Rafal. I always find it amazing to see the quality and accuracy of older maps before digital technology - even before aerial photgraphy for that matter.
Ps. What is the moreso that is part of your history?

Because it's mostly forgotten. Even here.

The maps in Poland before WWII were on really high level and after communist times it will last many many years until we achieve it again.


That's truth, I cannot imagine mapmaking without computers now.

I wish a team would reproduce the map by hand, retracing the historical method as used, and create a documentary. That would be interesting!

wow, thanks for sharing this BEAUTIFUL map with us Rafel. Funny how so many of the maps that we create with computers now work to achieve this same look. I'm particularly impressed with the subtle shading techniques to highlight the details of the mountains. Simply breathtaking!
