Provided with a small sample of the Geoscience Australia 1:250,000 Sydney Map (i6506), the original set of layers were filtered and modified for a more understandable topographic view.
The original image (above) had it’s themes filtered (below) to more general objects such as large hydrographic bodies, major transport networks, and color-ranged contours to represent elevation. Color and shapes were a significant component in representing an area as vegetation, farmland, built-up areas, residential and bodies of water.
