Thread: Hi all

    Post Hi all

    Just dropping a short note to say hi, and to introduce myself.
    I have absolutely no experience with this sort of thing but I'm driven to learn a bit more about the mapmaking process.
    I guess I'm a lover of all things cartographic/hydrographic. I can honestly say that I fell in love with maps when I was learning ocean navigation. As a result I spend far too long map-gazing. Adding the element of imagination and, of course, I was always going to end up here.
    Hope to meet you all in good time.

    Welcome to the guild. We have had lots of talk about ocean navigation in the past and all those Rhumb lines you see on maps. If you think that there is much to say on the matter then by all means post about map reading out in the ocean with no points of reference other than the sun and stars to go by. That would be an interesting post I think.

    And you know what, we should have a "map a pirate map" as a compo challenge for doing some hydrographic maps. Its been a long while...
