Hello again,
Today I've searched a map done 5 years ago of the Galapagos Islands for the GEO magazine.
The original size is small, just about 12 cm wide.It was made using SRTM data and Landsat data that was merged in photoshop with some hipsometric tints. The data was vertically exagerated too, as these islands are not very high.
Since an archipielago as this one has a lot of extension along the ocean, I added some vanishing lines to make islands stay in a plane, and so they dont float over the blue sea. There are other methods to make islands stay in a plane (textures, reflections) bus, as the map was going to be published in 12 cm, nay texture will make "noise", so I decided to use this trick
I hope you like it.
Best regards
Fernando

The full size image is not showing up for me, but the thumbnail looks very cool.

Thank you. I've checked and for me it downloads correctly. I'll check again, because I suspect I've uploaded a CMYK version.... :(
I upload the RGB version now... escuse me for the "bug"

That works. Thanks!

Excellent work as always! It's cool to see these islands with their volcanoes and all like this. Usually I've only seen flat maps of the islands with no terrain.
