I may be in the wrong place but am trying to find help creating my own maps in GIMP. I need to create realistic location maps for my senior thesis in Geology. The Professor has decided we are not allowed to copy other maps from other papers and cite them. I love being a guinea pig. I'm not the most proficient computer user to say the least and I only have 2 weeks to complete a draft through the methods section. Unfortunately, this includes my maps from geologic setting and current location of study samples. He also wants all figures (such as cross-sections and tables) to be original work. Any help will be useful. I do not know how to use Gimp but I have it installed and am playing around with it to get used to what it does.
