    Default Is this google maps for novelists?

    I want to take a moment and say hello. I'm Silk. I am a writer and some time artist. I have sold both the written word and various types of art work. I have been struggling with the old pen and paper form of cartography for my current fantasy series and it has been a huge fail. Some of this is because the world itself is one of the characters in the story and will need to change during the telling of the tale. The other part of my problem is that my world is large, but I want to be able to zoom to details (I want google maps for Karaborre).

    Any and all help for my modest cartography will be appreciated!

    First off, welcome to the Guild Silk! Second, I'm not sure if I fully understand the problem you are facing. However if you are attempting to create a scalable map similar to a google map, you will need a vector program such as Illustrator or Inkscape. At any rate, if you have specific questions I'd recommend posting them in the "How do I" sub-forum where more people will see it.

    Cheers,
