This dissertation presents the process of designing a tourist map of the upper valley of Kolpa, using volunteered geographic information from the OpenStreetMap platform. Additional documentation was obtained from the building cadastre. Information regarding the relief was sourced from the Generalized Cartographic Database (GKB). The map was designed and made using OCAD 12 software.
The idea to create a map of the upper Kolpa valley with Čabranka was inspired by an increasing number of tourists, seeking information about cycling, fishing, hiking and other outdoor activities. The map is designed to be equally convenient to use in a printed format as well as a digital one. Its simplicity makes it easy to use, regardless of previous knowledge or experience with map reading.
