How do I get a birds-eye-view of a map?

I have been searching the internet webs for a very long time attempting to find on how I get a birds-eye-view of the map I am currently on. I wasn’t sure what forum I should put this under so I put it under mapping.

I was wondering should I use “hammer” or is there like a console command I can use to get rid of fog so I can just simply fly up and take the photo?

-Thanks for the help <3

here are some examples I found on google images:

This guide should be able to help you, just follow the commands (resolution does not need to be changed if you’re not gonna make a minimap) https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Creating_a_working_mini-map#Make_the_raw_overview_image

Thank you
