Hello!
First of all, Greetings to all lovers of cartography ...
I come from a small country of Slovenia. Sketching panoramic maps and this is the land from where I live:

Hello Bojan, and welcome to Cartotalk. Your map looks nice, but I was wondering if you could attach the samples to a post here, rather than link to Picasa. This way, more people will be inclined to look at it and leave comments.

Do you draw them by hand? They look wonderful!

Yes what Hans said...

Welcome to Cartotalk Bojan. You do stunning stuff.

Tell us a bit more how you work. 3D Nature or some such program?. Do you market this as a poster?

Very nice! Definitely a marketable map. Yes, we would love to learn more about your process. Do you use Google Maps for aerial reference?

Thanks for the nice reception and interest ...
Years ago I worked panoramic maps on hand ... Unfortunately, this is no longer possible, because no one is prepared in such a small country like Slovenia to allow fair pay for work that is needed for manual labor.
This panoramic map I made in Photoshop, I used 12 leyer to the valley, forests, mountains, etc.. On the base map I was adding content, because I wanted to keep the ratio as in ordinary cartographic map. This then allows me enough precision marking positions. Map is sufficiently accurate for the purposes of tourism, where selective information is important for the customer, the seller of tourist services.
Unfortunately, it also accommodates the needs of color on the map, which tend to be very over-saturated.
Later, I processed the vector map in CorelDraw, which I added roads, rivers, place names ...

I think these are panoramic maps excellent for beginners, children who do not have good performances and good space for entering simple content for superficial viewers that the map is retained only a few minutes and want to know everything, he, he ... I hope you understand me, not underestimating anyone among us is a great and simple users.

After a while I'll still glued some of my panoramic maps that I have worked on the hands and combine and manipulate the computer.
I hope you understand me, English is not my language, I understand when I read a lot, but I use it poorly when writing!
Regards from Slovenia, Bojan
p.s. I enclose an old map (Bohinj , a nice place where I live in the vicinity :D ) which I did by hand and later worked out with the computer.

For Beginners!!! ... :o your work looks very advanced and sophisticated to me!... Maybe you meant to say they were popular. and I would venture to say the maps you posted are probably much more appreciated by discerning professionals than superficial viewers

Wow, cool stuff!

I would love to try something like this.

I find your palette is a bit too 'bold', I would go for a more neutral pastel color palette... but that could just be personal taste.

Great work! Keep posting!

Very, very nice map!!!

Few questions, viewing on the screen is viewing on the screen.

Is it the same in print, that names of the places are not very visible?

Photo 4, this bold red line - did you consider adding a baseline to it (like "- - - - - " or "_____")?

On my screen the color green is very dark, is that intended to have a strong contrast with white on the mountains or is it my screen?

It's a map that has a strong impact when you first see it! Great job.
