Im not familiar wih Manifold at all. I wonder if it's posiblle to get such map using only manifold with no need to export to illy?
whitewash, adding background colours stroke to font, legend ect.
If so, what you think about time necessary to do it? Would it be faster to do it in Manifold ?
what about symbolizing in it?
Map is pretty easy to do in illy , but manifold capabilities are unknown for me.

I added it one more time. If there will be still problem, the previous version can be seen using IE instead of Mozilla. IE shows it propertly by "save target file as"

Seems like it is a CMYK jpeg file, which web browsers don't seem to like, here it is as an RGB jpeg...

From what I can gather from your description: yes, it would be easy. The "hardest" bit would be putting together that legend, but if you have only one render zoom, that's a one-off, as in your example then it's no trouble. What is the name of your font/typeface? What locale etc?

All you need is to learn how. :lol: I'd be happy to work through it if you want to provide the data.

Thanks for the comment. Font is EFN Bureau OT. The map was delivered to me, from company in Illy format (no georeference) with ask if it's posiblle to do that in GIS. I use ArcGIS at univeristy, so for personal use in my case (beeing student) the only way was to ask about manifold. Maybe legends could be prepared into Illy export to gif and place in that format in manifold? or doesnt it make any sense?
Just thanks for let me know Manifold can do that. I read about it poor capabillities at carto, but the graphic of that map is also poor.. so maybe this is solution:)

Sounds like a perfect match: a poor tool for a poor result. ;)

Actually I thought the map was pretty nice, it seems to convey information well.
