    I have been to many sites where the designer has used a minimal street map, always black and white - These maps, unlike what you get with Yahoo, Google, or Live maps, where the street names are typically written on top of the actual street lines, the names are on the side or along the street lines - the street lines are solid black ... an example for instance you can find at http://cahillpark.com/directions.html.
    These maps are great for websites.

    Do you know where people get these maps, or how they make them ...!?

      Bahram, I would bet my lunch that this map was created in Adobe Illustrator. I'm pretty sure that there are easier/cheaper programs you could make this in, not sure tho because I use illustrator.

      Many people who want a lovely  map like this will start with a google/yahoo map, then trace out the important bits in illustrator, and create their own pretty captions. Not hard to do if you have the software. HTH
