This is a set of maps that I made for the frontispiece of a bound volume of my mother's journals that she wrote during a sailing trip in the Greek islands. Key ingredients are WARMreader for the route labeling and babel for the place names.
Further, I don't know squat about Greek, so I undoubtedly made errors in some of the labels. I'm sending you a one-page excerpt from a paper of mine that was published in the American Journal of Mathematics.
Hope you will find it useful. I'm sure Ross Moore and others can provide more interesting examples of the power of Xy-pic. I've used the cd-cover class and the tiling macros from PSTricks to produce nice looking enclosure for my sample cd.
The idea for the cover is based upon a title page by Imre Reiner. The interesting point, I think, is the use of ornaments. Ornaments have accompanied the letters trough the whole history of the book. So I think it is a great chance for TeX to bring back ornaments in the books. I know, there are some articles on tiling with TeX, but they are most technically oriented.
Mine is a real life example. A Beer bottle label created with TeX.
I could use a bottle right now Submitter Kester Clegg writes: The labels are designed to be cut out and put round the neck of beer bottles my home brews as it happens!
One thing I like about using latex instead of a normal graphics program is that I get minute control, I can work on a single label for speed, and when I'm finished, I uncomment my 'block' of labels and bingo!
I get the whole lot at once! Kanji characters, slowly fading out to help you practice.
This has been created with ConTeXt and Metapost. This is a Metapost program and wrapper TeX document that generates a baseball scorecard, as well as demonstrates the scoring from the game where Mark McGwire broke Roger Maris' season home run record in The Metapost code includes a variety of locations, paths, and functions to make it easy to generate nice-looking baseball scorecards with or without the scoring.
I've included the Metapost source, as well as the wrapper file I use to produce PDF versions for printing on letter sized paper. The source consists of just lines of LaTeX and uses John Reynolds's fine macros package for diagrams diagmac. The diagram was designed to be viewed on the web.

It is a cave map produced by Therion, free cave mapping software. It uses MetaPost for drawing of map symbols such as passage walls or lakes, and pdfTeX for all the typesetting.
It demonstrates the incredible flexibility of TeX and MetaPost.Automatic Single Page-based Algorithms for Medieval Manuscript Analysis Ying Yang, Yale University, USA Ruggero Pintus, CRS4, Italy Document layout analysis, medieval manuscripts, text block computation, text line seg- Automatic Single Page-based Algorithms for Medieval Manuscript Analysis * surviving copies.

In computer vision, document layout analysis is the process of identifying and categorizing the regions of interest in the scanned image of a text document.
A reading system requires the segmentation of text zones from non-textual ones and the arrangement in their correct reading order. . If there would be no intelligent layout analysis, but use only use one large text block, then the results of are by far not that useable for a human for example on a multi-column document, then the user would also get the text, but not.
A document image is composed of a variety of physical entities or regions such as text blocks, lines, words, figures, tables, and background. We could also assign functional or logical labels such.
