Fantastic Maps - Quick & Attractive City Mapping

Great tips on how to make your city maps look better from the very talented cartographer Jonathan Roberts* here

I'm going to try this out with the Parsantium city map over the Christmas holidays if I get the chance. As I add more and more location labels to it, I'm conscious that it's getting harder and harder to read, and where each ward and city district starts and ends is less easy to tell at a glance. I'm also keen to try and replace the little black squares I've drawn for the buildings with something better, maybe an icon of some sort.

* Jonathan did the excellent dungeon maps in Halls of the Mountain King.
