Looks very nice.

 

Maybe one thing . I think it doesn´t work fine when hillshade shows more detail than contour lines. I´d try with a more generalized DEM. Perhaps you don´t need to use contours.

Certainly, as a tourist map is, I think it would be better without contour lines, but the client wanted them! For that scale, as you say, next time i´d try with another DEM

Thanks

Very nice. I especially like the font choice and how the symbols stand out from the background.

 

Saludos desde Madrid!

I didn´t said but I like very much vector data symbolization  and the legend on this map . I think  it  took too much work.

Pretty map,
Just two things:
- It would be "cleaner" if you would have smoothed the vector lines, specially the rivers
- If the map is in Basque & Spanish, it seems that the criteria about names is lost at some point. I mean, i.e. Bilbao & Donostia and other naming is mixing languajes. If the criteria is to use local basque , use Basque everywhere, else use Spanish or... use the two, doubling the labels. (The last option I know fills two much the map)
Just about scientific criteria
Best

Thank you EOSGIS for your comments,

 

About the criteria of the names, it was a client decision. I´m according to you in using the criteria you say, but finally the client wants to use the most common and used names in the territory, despite of normalized names of these places.

 

About the lines, next time i´ll try these technique ;)

Yes, I know,  clients some times can do all of us lost when using a map, ;-)
