Well met indeed! There are a couple of good tutorials on making maps using Bryce on the Daz website. Anna, our resident Bryce expert has posted a tutorial here. Your best bet is to do a search using 'bryce' as the search term and look for the results which carry the tutorial banner and check them out.
Bryce is a bit counter intuitive to start with, but for the price, it's a lovely bit of kit, particularly for compositing work. The render engine doesn't compare to the stuff that's out today though.
