How difficult would it be for a user to create this "road" effect in Inkscape?


Not difficult, but somewhat time consuming. The coastline could be 

autotraced, but the roads would be best redrawn. The railway line would 

take a little longer (there may be a clever way to make it with 

markers), and the drop shadow under the sign would have to be faked with 

gradients, or the blur effect.


If one had access to some of the data that was generated from, then creating SVG from it might not be too difficult.
