Maps galore.

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 29, 2014, 6:54 PM
I worked about 2 days on the map of Kalmen. Still not done.

The next part of the story demands more detail in certain areas, so I had to make sure I got it right so I can reference it. I made this  country and I want to explore it!

I have created these maps : Elevation maps , summer and winter high temps, plant hardiness zones (USDA equiv) , precip maps, and biome maps.

The map is over 4000 pi tall and all these items are named: countries, provinces, capital cities, minor cities, districts, rest stops, mountains, lakes, seas, oceans. Also included are lines of latitude and longitude and map scale of course.

I used almost all of your names mostly for the micro cities you see along the way every 50 km on the Super Hwys. If the names weren't English sounding enough, I anglicised them so that they would fit into the Kalmen. I think I just about got everyone too!

SO much work, figuring out fonts and making sure it is spic and span. I will try to have it done tomorrow, but with these maps I can tell you everything from elevation, to yearly average rainfall of your service stop.

I have to write up all the city averages and whatnot, so that I have it all ironed out. I will do the main cities first, but I want eventually to have all the stops too.

Also another page tomorrow too! If I can I will post the  large map of all the names.

Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

i love how you put so much research and detail in your comics! the other day as i was reading, i was constantly thinking it looked like photos of scenes, shots from a movie - street names, locations, buildings, cars, so much work poured into every pane. i spend more time staring at the cars and surroundings than reading. :XD: it is definitely visible how much you love your work on this project. :)

That sounds like an impressive amount of work! Wish I had the drive to do that.
