I just got my Fall 2005 Cartographic Perspectives (just in time too - a couple more days and it's going to be winter...) and I found a very interesting article on making bird's-eye view maps by Tom Patterson from the NPS.

I am finding the article very insightful and wanted to pass along an online link of the article that Tom is hosting on his Shaded Relief site.


The gallery is especially interesting.

Thanks! Those gallery samples are tremendous! I could look at images like this for days on end.....and do, since my firm also does a great deal of 3D perspective work. B)

Awesome link....I really appreciate it.
