I have a design solution for a project in my head but I’m not sure how to make it a reality.
I have a client with many different branches and services distributed around a specific region. They’d like a map showing the general locations of these branches. But the goal is more to demonstrate the scope of their offerings than provide a practical map (i.e. to use for directions).
I want to make an outline map of the region complete with an outline of the street grid. But then I want to angle it into an oblique perspective - like a landscape with a horizon. Then I’ll hover markers with the names, addresses and descriptions of the branches above it.
The tricky part if making a relatively accurate outline map that doesn’t get too fussy. It should be recognizable as the region even as the finest details are omitted. Am I making sense?
Don’t have a lot of experience with maps. Any suggestions?
