Update - We've had a few more people join the Guildworld project. We've also had some people begin to add some city maps to their countries. I decided to do that as well. Here's the city of Poh - done as a detailed black and white map. Need more BW maps in my portfolio. Will have more coming soon.
Update - So this was my entry to the Guildworld project. We have 50+ people in this thing. Loads of great maps made and more on the way.
So today is the official 10 year birthday of the Cartographers Guild.
So I made a cake. The big community challenge mapping project is moving along and we have loads of great maps being made.
Some are quite unique, and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves, which is what it's all about.
So to update on this - we have started a Guildworld mapping challenge which is really active and growing.
48 entrants so far - so 48 country maps in progress - and there are some really cool maps being made.
Once everyone is done, we'll be doing a large composite of all the maps which should be pretty cool.
If anyone wants to get in on that, just follow the link - www.cartographersguild.com/sho…
I update this stuff on the Guild FB account, if you're interested in that - www.facebook.com/cartographers…
I map a lot and cartography work has been really picking up over the last year or so.
If you're into maps, then you've likely already found the Cartographers Guild - www.cartographersguild.com/con…
I've been a member there for a number of years, and I've been a mod there for some months now.
I do PR stuff on FB and write interviews and articles and such.
I just found out today that yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the Guild. [EDIT - I have to make a correction - the anniversary is April 20th. I was a bit misinformed and jumped the gun a bit. Still, it's close.
We're coming up with some special things to do to celebrate the event.
I'll post an update once we have it all set up, but in the mean while I wanted to post some of the work done by members of the Guild here on DA.
If you love maps, you'll love these. In no particular order. Cheers, John
There might be a few non Guild mappers in there, no worries. If I missed you - apologies.
So many great maps. Lastly I'll through in one of my own. Happy Birthday Guild
