Route overview

On to the next bit of special effects: the route overview on a map of earth. I started out with a standard political map, but it looked a bit too boring and didn't go with the website's colour scheme. After so many years of working in the media industry, I might as well be perfectionist about certain things.

The final map was rendered in a 3d software, including a bump map for the mountains. The reflection was added in Photoshop. It all took a bit longer after all, but it looks much nicer than my first attempts.
