    Post Hi everyone!

    I just found this site a few days ago and its an amazing place.

    I've been a proffessional cartographer and GIS Analyst for about 20 years now with a BS in Geography.
    I've always been interested in Fantasy maps, but never dreamed the maps would be made at this type of quality. The maps I've seen on this site are just absolutly lovely.

    I've been mapping borders and property lines and topo lines and water lines for so long I really forgot how exciting maps could actually be. Seeing what you have done here has really motivated this old guy to once again create maps for the sheer fun of it!

    I'm going to download the Gimp program as it seems there are alot of Tutorials here for it and that will help me a ton getting started.

    Anyway, just wanted to say hi to you all and I hope I can be a steady contributer to the site.

    Thanks,
    Todd

    Welcome Todd! It's great to have a 'proper' cartographer here! It would be great (once you've had an explore) if you could share your knowledge about how you go about making real life maps. Really looking forward to seeing your contributions!

    I've always thought that there's definitely an overlap between what we do and what proper cartographers do. We're artisitic and you're precise and we could learn a lot from each other.

    BTW have you seen the Cartotalk site?

    All the best and welcome again!
