Building a Web Map, Part 6

School is now over!

I presented my thesis on monday, I'm going to upload it as a link in the sidebar. The web map has all of the locations placed with custom icons and popups.

also I finished a poster of Karameikos for another class, I'll also post a link along with the paper for that project, but here is a screenshot.

Of course I continue to plan working on this project, I am going to upload a modified version of the of the poster to the web map as a new basemap. From there I will probably be working on a hex overlay with info tied to each hex.

There are still a few locations that need to be placed, I'll listthem below with pertinent information, If you have any input, let me know.

    Have you already seen my old 1 mile hexmaps? They contain canon /fanon information. http://6inchnails.deviantart.com/art/West-Karameikos-Mystara-663338785 more links below this example,

    Lance Duncan:
    yeah, I have copies of most of your stuff along with a lot of other fan works. It's definitely an inspiration to see all the work that has already been done, though because I'm limiting myself to cannon material I'm not including a lot of things I would like to at this time.
