Welcome aboard!

Seems you put alot of work into it.
To a point that it seems forced -in my humble opinion it doesn't come out as coherent with the details as the layout in general.

Have you seen this page before?

Thanks for the advice. yes i did keep searching & learn about cartography. but i didn't learn the Theory & concept yet. it's just come of my mind about 2 weeks ago.
Actually it's should be done by my friend about this project but no one help me so i do it by myself which is almost zero experience in drawing Art
And now i'll be learn alot about drawing 2D & 3D stuff ...

To me, it's the style of an old world map, but it looks crisp and bright. You could try making the colors less bright, less saturated. Or maybe slightly (very slightly) blur some parts. Or maybe masking, although it might not be easy for a newbie. Or try some filters to make it look old and beat up? Lazur's made some filters which might work well for that kind of thing, and there are others which are already installed with Inkscape.

@Brynn .. Great thanks for your details. I'll make it happen. it's not about newbie or pro, But i'll like to make it easier to read & understand for common people so that's why it's too bright .. haha

Did someone say my name?

That is a nice first map haidarvm!

One of the inconsistencies is with the icons - I can see that they came from a variety of sources so have different line weights - you may want to try redrawing them yourself to have a more consistent iconography (tracing over existing images is a great way to learn the Inkscape drawing tools).

The rhumb lines (coming from the compass rose) are clearly there for artistic reasons, but you should take a bit more care in getting them lined up with the compass points.

And as suggested by Brynn, I'd desaturate the red and green a bit - more like a rust red and a moss green so they don't pop so much.

Cheers, and keep up the good work!
