I am an artist and new to interactive map-making. I want to create a custom map to use as a layer, but I want to do it in the most efficient, tech-savy way. So, my questions are:
Is there a way to download and print the base layer so that I draw accurate proportions, etc?
Is there a site where I can find image specifics, pixel dimension recommendations, format, size?
Is there potentially a step-by-step guide for doing what I would like to do?
To recap, I want to take the world map that is in Arc GIS, print it and design my own map based on those dimensions. I then want to scan in my drawing and apply that to my map as a layer.
I appreciate any help or links! Thank you!
