Hello everyone.. As title says, I use FM8 just recently switching from 7. Looking to learn more on how to improve my mapping quality and look forward to reading the tutorials. I don't pretend that I will do astounding work. I am more of a rules system and tinkerer guy than an artist.

What steps have you taken to learn FM8 so far? Have you downloaded the two free tutorials and worked your way through them? They take only a few days' time.

You can download the beginning documentation and tutorial here:

NBOS Online Exchange (http://www.nbos.com/nox/index.php?action=1001&id=124)

You can download the advanced raster mapping tutorial here:


And the support files here:


FM8 is very easy to use, compared to most cartographic programs. It will let you be an expert user after about a weeks' worth of work with these two tutorials. Just work your way through them following the instructions, step by step. If you have problems with something in the tutorials, let us know what those problems are, and I'm sure you'll get the help you need.
