This map shows how interesting the terrain that Banks Peninsula has, in a similar style to some of New Zealand’s earlier terrain maps, which I got the inspiration for after playing around with open elevation data. The difference here is that this one was created using only contours (no hillshade), lake and coastline features to represent it.
