Space Map

I’m a big fan of science fiction and computer games, so I couldn’t resist making a space themed map.

I designed the map using Mapbox’s TileMill 2 software and textures made from Lost and Taken’s free texture database.

TileMill 2 allows map data customization at every zoom level. I styled the map extensively by adding pseudo-3D edges to buildings, changing the text of cities into ‘space colonies,’ and adding bright markers to simulate city lights.
