After reading the MapMaker manual and almost throwing the keyboard by the window, I was wondering if there is any sofware one can use to create a map from a scan?

How do you people proceed?

First decide to either draw a free hand map or to create an underlay map for tracing over.....for using a scan of a map,create a bitmap underlay.. Read the Draw Map/Use Bitmap Underlays section of the MapMaker Manual....Not difficult to do after a couple of tries..For the most part I just have used maps I have downloaded off of the internet..Though quality of the downloaded maps can be poor sometimes..
Not sure about other software for creating scans....Have not tried that yet...Perhaps a library could make a scan for you?

I'm using maps found on the internet and google earth.
So it's back to create an underlay map and start drawing on it.
Thanks for the advice sweeteye
