    Wip Inkscape Mapping Basics

    This is a work in progress, but I decided to post it to get some feedback. It's a quick run through of some tools that aren't covered by the tutorials that come with Inkscape and their applications in mapping rather than a step by step guide to some particular task.

    I've added a bit more, and some crossreferences (All crossreferences are hyperlinks you can click on)

    Looks interesting. I'll look more closely at some of these features.

    Great, please tell me if you find any places the instructions seem insufficient or excessive, or where I made a mistake or missed something.

    I'm thinking of adding a section with some "Quick Tricks", very short walk sub-tutorials of some common tasks that aren't immediately obvious, like the description of how to make the forest in the Path Effects section.

    I too am just learning Inkscape so I'm looking forward to reading through this: I'll comment further once I've given it a try.

    Cheers,

    I've added another section with a mini tutorial on producing tree symbols similar to the ones in my recent "The Lands of the Inner Sea" map. I'll probably move the forest path effect bit to that section and expand it to a similar level of detail, and maybe add a few other quick little exercises to make use of the tools explained in the other sections.
