Interactive Map!

Sadly, I can’t make an interactive map on the blog because of the way WordPress works. However, over in my more tinkering friendly workshop… https://camestrosfelapton.neocities.org/middleearthschematicsvg.html

That was a fun exercise – basically, it uses Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) and Javascript. The SVG is exported from the graphic program I made the original map in but I can access each layer programmatically. Learning is fun! Nerdy learning is funner! Nerdy learning with graphics is funnest!

Speaking of fun – Paul Weimer has written a defence of fantasy maps (or at least a defence of the good ones) http://skyseastone.net/jvstin/?p=4700
