    I'm building a website and would like to create some maps of where the location is, and I really like the Apple store maps. Does anyone know how they made them or if there's a program they used? Here's an example.

    Thanks.

    If i had to guess they probably used a program like illustrator or fireworks, since the image is a still image and small, they can really work hard on the detail of such a small area.

    i think they draw it with illustrator or something like that. just get a digital image of the map you want to use, use it as an underlay, and draw the lines and areas in the style you like.

    edit: jimong you beat me!
