I love the style! Interesting Gridlines.
The title is most excellent "A New and Accurate Mappe of" very classic.

ArcMap would not have been my first choice to create a product like this.
Did you run it through Photoshop as-well?

Great job

According to the New York Times crossword puzzle, today is "Talk like a Pirate Day." I guess I missed the memo.

Yaaaar!

Blow me down! That map ain't made by no bilge-sucker, but if yer thinkin' thar's any treasure afoot you'd be hornswaggled. I've seen such a map at a NACIS when I was three sheets to the wind.

What a scallywag to be using Arrrrc for such a map. When I first heard of such a thing I thought yer were a son a biscuit eater - then realized the drivelswigger you be.

To my esteemed colleague,

May I respectfully suggest that your worthy cartographic undertaking, although pleasingly adorned and visually appealing, betrays a style that is at least a century out of date. With reference to our recent effort to create a more modern (nineteenth century) map of the same area, I offer it now for your viewing: http://www.mapgraphi...ux19thCntry.pdf

With gratitude for your time and consideration, I remain
Your most humble servant

Just shows what you can do with ArcMap and the Historical Style sets. Excellent example.

Shiver me timbers find me treasure but no where to find me 'X' But the map indeed me fine template to draw thy map for me treasure. ;)

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."

Dave,
Awesome map. Super impressive. Is any of this work going to show up in the form of tutorials on the mapping center website?
