example map created using the PSD

Today I am releasing a PSD that can be used for creating cartoonish maps like the example above (click the image for a larger preview). The File contains various elements such as road parts, buildings, river parts, trees, cars, a tennis court, a pool, a lake and a boat. You can use it to simply create a road or a more complex map.

All elements are created by using vector shapes, so they can be resized to any size without loss of quality. However, I would advise you to first create your map and then resize all the elements together. Each element is in a named folder. The way I use this PSD is simple, with the move tool selected, I make sure that I have the Auto Select box checked and the Groups option selected. I simply click on the element I want to use, duplicate the group and then move it were I like and fit all the pieces together to get my desired result.

About a couple of the elements, there are two road pieces called bridged, these are in case you want a part of the road to go over another piece of the road or river. There is also an element called river-lake-connector, this is obviously used if you want to connect the river with the lake.

Below are the elements that are available in the Photoshop file.
