I have a keen interest in Graphics Design and have always wondered how town maps are created I assume it's a mixture of GIS and Photoshop/Illustrator. Anyone here of any experience producing these kind of maps? I'd love to know the process and have a go myself.
I've included an example of something more on the GIS side of the spectrum. I do think this map could be produced with OS Mastermap and coloring the right designated classes but I'm sure this map was likely produced with layers I'm unfamiliar with any ideas?
To Focus my question could anyone direct me to any resources that discuss this in detail?
