Hey guys, new here and to the world of Cartography. Decided to go back to school recently and my advisor suggested I take a GIS class. Now I'm finishing up the last class I need for my GIS Cert. and entered a layout that I created for GIS day for the class and got first place. The price was free tickets to the ESRI conf. out in San Diego. So now I'm it's something that I'm getting hooked on, so I hope to learn more from this board and take it to the next level :)

welcome to the guild - have a look around and post what you do inhere. We're mostly into fantasy mapping and such but always love a good map :)

Hi halliwood. Most of us don't use GIS software to make our maps - we are more 'arty' than 'sciency', but we welcome any maps made with any software!

If you are looking at Cartography as a future career, you should have a look at www.cartotalk.com which is a forum where the GIS cartographers hang out.

would like to get more into the fantasy side of it, but still really new to everything. I just quit my job of five years this weekend as a graphics specialist using mainly adobe software. So I know my way around photoshop and illustrator pretty well. and looks like I'll have some free time on my hands now so will hopefully be able to play a lot and create some pretty cool things.

You should find all the tutorials pretty straightforward and will probably teach us a thing or three before long! Welcome to the fold!
