Production of the maps
All maps are produced by jukoweb.de itself. The Openstreetmap geodata serve as the data basis. In a special procedure the data is processed with the help of a geographic information system and finally the maps and city plans are produced. Through the selection of information, the compilation into layers and the respective assignment of design features, a map is created that cannot be found anywhere else on the world market. So if you want to have a map that does not look uniform, you are in the right place!

The initial import of an svg file into Adobe Illustrator (to be used are the files with the extension "..... partial fontlayers as path (means: the names of a few layers/layers with naming, which are not set horizontally, have already been converted to paths here, so that their display is correct) also takes some time, but after saving to ai format, the maps are also good to edit.
