Cartography – Multi-scale Map Design


I have made a Tolkien-style map using Carto CSS via Mapbox Studio Classic. Tolkien’s fonts, textures, color-schemes, and icons are applied in this map. You can take a look at the full map here.



  • Carto CSS
  • Mapbox Studio Classic
  • SQL to get mountain peak data from Overpass Turbo
  • Photoshop and Illustrator to create water-color textures, all icons, and hatch patterns.
