How i create my own custom made election maps? Is there a guide or something out there?
So uh, i have a few questions.
1) Is there a website where you can find greyscale heightmaps (like this one: ) but for specific locations, and/or more importantly, not in an equirectangular projection? Even if it's a non equirectangular world map it's ok
2) Can you do this with Arcgis or Qgis? Can you download elevation data and make a grey scale heighmap from it?
3) Is there a way to change the projection of a high quality worldmap? I know about G Projector but it only goes up to 7500 * 3500 px, is there a software that can do it for much larger maps (20,000 px large or more)?
Thanks for your answers.
I don't know if this is the fight thread
However, how can i draw the map boxes?
Can someone provide me with a tutorial for paint uniforms and armors?
How does one draw realistic looking electoral districts in a completely fictional country?
Yes to all of those questions and I can tell you how! Send me a private message.
Can anyone show me a tutorial on how to make a map like this? I'm interested in making these types.
Pardon me, but how would I interpret the RGB value for a colour in a colour scheme/key if it doesn't show the RGB value of a colour in that scheme?
NOTE: The following advice assumes a default menu (and keybindings) for each respective Graphics Editor, and does not cover other editors like Photoshop, as I neither own such programs nor have any experience with them.
In Paint.net, there is a "Colors" window, with a "More >>" button located in the top right of the Color Wheel. Clicking this button will expand the window to the right, providing a section bearing additional information regarding the selected color, including, first and foremost, RGB values. Using the color picker tool (keyboard shortcut: K), select a color of choice in the scheme, and voila! The expanded window should have within it the RGB values of said color.
Interpreting the RGB values in GIMP is a slightly different process. The color picker tool (keyboard shortcut: O) should be used first, as the RGB values of the selected color can be interpreted by clicking the active foreground color, located below the tools menu, whereupon color selection dialog should appear, displaying to the top-right RGB values; each individual value is displayed as a percentage of 255. I have three words after that. Do the math.
I hope this will be of some help to you, and perhaps, other members of the forum...
Thank you for helping me out
Does anyone know what GIS to use for mapping?
