3D map of the battle of Actium
The map was published in Historia National Geographic Magazine .
Maps of battles usually maps in two diemsiones which explain the movements of the troops during the battle and that are usually aimed at a public that is already familiar with military terminology and graphic design. On many occasions, the representation of the terrain tends to be of a technical nature, or non-existent. This makes that you are not perceived clearly the importance of the ground can have on the development of a battle.
Raising me making maps of battles for National Geographic magazine, I decided that the GIS integration, with actual data of the area and a complete graphics could allow the reader better understand the environment in which these battles were developed.
A more work with cartography and data graphics do not have why turn a technical explanation of a battle into something less serious.
Map was made with a digital model of the ground, location of ancient cities and is a 3D perspective rendering by integrating all the elements of the landscape, textures, and armies.
Subsequently made modifications in photoshop and in Adobe Illsutartor information was edited.
The map was Fernando j. Sanchez Menendez done by.
