Just wanted to say hello. I've always enjoyed maps and map making, and I'm really enjoying what I'm seeing on the site. Hopefully I can learn and get my skills up to par. I'm fortunate enough to get to play with ARCMAP some at my job, but I haven't got to play with fantasy maps in a while. I think I will be downloading GIMP soon.
Welcome to the Guild Vinoex! GIMP is a great place to begin (not familiar with ARCMAP). At any rate, look forward to seeing you around.
ACRMAP is part of the ESRI suite of GIS software. Its good for actual work, not necessarily works of art like what I see on this site.
