We propose a multi-stage framework to create the stylized map art images. Existing techniques are successful in transferring style in photos. Yet, the noise in results and the harmonization in the generated art images still need to be investigated. We address these issues with a proposed algorithm that defines a good portrait for map art application in the initial round. A refinement strategy is then applied to produce the final map arts that meet the aforementioned expectations. Beside our plausible results, the objective evaluation presented in this paper shows that our proposed method can interactively achieve better and appealing map art results in the comparison with those of other works. In addition, our method can also create ocean or landscape stylized paintings using our map art collage.
