Double Hemisphere Template by Hai-Etlik Double Hemisphere Template by Hai-Etlik
Double Hemisphere map template with Polar insets in Stereographic Projection with a 15 graticule.

In The GIMP, simply open and specify pixel dimensions to render.

In Inkscape open the Layers palette to turn on the background and feature layers and start drawing. The background and feature layers are masked.

Should work with any other SVG capable software.

Including that in the description on dA is sufficient.

Am I allowed to use this template (edited, of course) on an outside site such as Tumblr? (so long as I put in the attribution)
Reply
:iconhai-etlik:
Yes. As long as the attribution is either directly in the image, or included along with it. If you are posting it to a web site, you can put the attribution in a caption, description, or the like. Anything equivalent to the description on dA is fine.

Managed to download it with Google Chrome as Firefox does not allow to save and will save only as webpage.

It saves just fine for me in Firefox 4.0.1. I click the "Download" link, then File -> Save Page As. I opened the resulting file in Inkscape with no problems.

Nicely done. Wish you had something like this for Photoshop CS.

Photoshop may be able to open SVG; give it a try. Failing that you could try using Inkscape, The GIMP, or if you have it, Adobe Illustrator, and then export to a raster image.

Using Inkscape or Illustrator gives the further benefit of being able to adjust the style of the lines first should you wish to.

Yea, unfortunately, I'm broke after buying CS, LOL.

The GIMP and Inkscape are both Free.

A tutorial on how to set it up would be nice.

Well, you open it. It's an image. Any SVG capable software can use it this way.

If you are using Inkscape, there will be two hidden layers which you can turn on: a background and a foreground, both of them are automatically masked.

Then just draw draw your map on it, keep in mind that it stretches things out away from the centre. You can fake the poles by copying the tops and bottoms from the main map to the insets and scaling down, or by cutting the insets in half and scaling up. Using the graticule as a guide for the scaling; the two circles on the inset should roughly match up with the first two arcs from the top and bottom of the main map.
