[nbos] [FM8] A raster map of a hemisphere
"Mark Oliva"
Sat Mar 20th, 2010
One kind of raster map I don't think I've seen on the NBOS web site or in
the forums is a cartographic representation of an entire hemisphere.
Therefore, on the NBOS Resources page and in the maps forum, we're offering
a look at our Build 318, a work-in-progress [WIP] map that's in an advanced
draft stage. There are no place names on it yet.

The map is the western hemisphere of the Jr, which is the name of the
world in the new Jrgar (TM) campaign setting that our project group is
developing. If you want to know more about Jrgar, go to
http://www.vintyri.com and pick the Jrgar option.

There still is a fair amount of work to do on this map. The end version
will use FM8's multi-zoom-resolution feature, so that everything will appear
without pixilation at any reasonable zoom level. In addition, text sizes
will adjust to the zoom level. The location names also will have links that
will open regional maps of the area clicked, and the regional maps will have
similar links that will open city, town and village maps.

We also are designing all of our maps with use together with digital
projectors and with Internet gaming with programs like Screen Monkey (TM) in
mind.
