Cartography

     Well, it's done now. The map of my city, Belport, is complete. Well, mostly. I hope to someday get street names onto it, but this will work for now. It was quite difficult to come up with at first. I initially wanted a neighborhood approach like Chicago, Frisco, and of course New York, but after seeing just how many neighborhoods there were in such a small space, I decided to go for something more along the lines of boroughs. Smaller towns that ended up merging together into one city. I may go back into each area of the city to flesh out neighborhoods for it, but that's a debate for later. I rather enjoy each area of the city keeping the name it had throughout the city's history. I will likely put up the history I developed a piece at a time, but now, hit the jump to see the map.
