Canada in Black and White by Hai-Etlik Canada in Black and White by Hai-Etlik
My entry in the March 2012 Cartographers' Guild Challenge. The theme is Black and White.

I made this primarily in QuantumGIS and Inkscape although I also used OpenJUMP, The GIMP, and some custom software written in Java using the JTS library.

I got most of my data from NaturalEarth.

Thanks, it ought to be. This isn't just a picture that's meant to look like a map. It's a real, to scale map made with real world data, in a real projection (Statistics Canada Lambert Conformal Conic NAD83(CSRS)), put together with real GIS software.

The mountains aren't actual specific peaks, and obviously the trees aren't specific trees either, but that's it as far as made up stuff goes, and those are really just meant as symbols of "there are mountains" and "this is a forest biome"

Map appears to be carefully done, with many details, which unfortunately can not be evaluated very well for the sake of low resolution. Nevertheless map is impressive and appears to be transparent.

That's odd, the download link should be a 150 DPI, 8 colour indexed PNG with no transparency.

Actually, it's just that the map covers part of California. However, There are small pockets here on southern Vancouver Island that are too small to show up on the map.
