[Mystara Database] Map Types

Post by Thorf » Mon Jul 07, 2008 3:24 am

This small table will list the various types of maps which can be assigned to each map in the database. In the current design, each map can only have one type.
  1. Geographical - physical maps showing terrain features, both man-made and natural.
  2. Political - maps showing the political divisions of the world, often with a selection of settlements but few other terrain features.
  3. Demographic (Thematic) - maps showing demographic information and statistics.
  4. Topographic (Contour) - physical maps marking altitude with contour lines.
  5. Pictorial - illustrated maps with a more artistic than technical style.
  6. Town - plan views of settlements showing buildings and roads.
