Cartographer's Annual 2007

The Cartographer's Annual Vol 2

November ’08

Map Border Corner

This month we're looking at something that every map's got, but what rarely gets much attention: the map border. Not only does it define the extents of the drawing we create, it also serves as ornamentation and provides a technical reference object for many of Campaign Cartographer's tools. Understanding these functions is a key to making full use of CC3's powerful features; and therefore we will take a detailed tour along the border.
