Hello!

 

Here is my new mountain map of Triglav area (Julian Alps - Slovenia) at scale 1:25000. It is two sided and 6 color printed map (4+2). Any suggestions for next edition are welcome.

Oh and here is a clip at 150dpi. It seems that colors are somehow more blueish that printed ones.

Looks really great! It looks like the data you're working with is really fine quality -- where did it come from?

Thank you!

Data came mostly from Slovenian Geodetic Authority. I have to pay for commercial use of their data. Otherwise all manmade objects are acquired from recent orthophotos. It is time consuming to vectorize all buildings, roads,... but I find out that there is no better source than orthophotos if a high quality is in question. In fact every map that I've made recently at this scale (1:500 - 1:50000) was checked by orthophotos (aerial or satellite). This is the only way to get a map with all recently build objects.

Paths came mostly from GPS data. I'm still not satisfied completely with their generalization but in next edition this will be better.

The hillshading seems to be more powerful in this generated preview than it is on printed map. I'm still not 100% satisfied with some local contrast in it, but a line between personal perfection and good enough quality has to be drawn. Well at least this time ;-)

Great map! I really enjoyed the Bohinj map as well. Do you use Photoshop for rock drawing? Also, do you do the illustrations? I rarely see such well drawn and impressive guides for alpine and climbing areas in the U.S.

Thank you! Illustrations were done by professional illustrator and were based on photographs. Rocks are actually scanned from existing National map at scale of 1:25000. I'm not very satisfied with them, but for the budget that was available for this map they are fine.

Yes I'm aware that in US there are not so many maps with this kind of rock presentation. Hey I can make some ;-)

Is there anywhere these maps can be purchased in the United States? If not is there a place you would recommend?

Awesome job Lui!  

 

In addition to the rock textures and shading, my favorite part is the kick-out for Mojstrana.  

 

I don't have any recent plans to visit the area, but I would like to have a printed copy of this to see it in person.

Hi!

 

Thank you for positive responses (still hoping and waiting for some critic).The map is available at publisher's site. In a month or so it will be available another mountain map at same scale of different part of Slovenia. It will be done in same manner including some kick-outs ;-) I'll posted a notice and an overview here of course.
