Just for interest, here is a equal-area world map made using an orange-peel projection called the 'Dudley projection'. The projection was developed for the 'Map Maker' software package and I don't think I've seen it mentioned here before. Very elegant, I thought.

Regards, N.

Agreed. Very nice. I like the little spiral bit for Antarctica.

I am, Nat. I've been doing some work with groups of volunteer woodland archaeologists who need to be able to plot features found in woodland on background mapping. Many of our old woodlands have preserved the remains of features like sawpits, charcoal kilns, lime pits, earthworks and very old field systems, the sort of things that have been ploughed-out elsewhere. The free version if MM is very good for plotting simple survey data gathered using recreational GPS receivers and by simple surveying methods like the compass traverse. In my case, I do have the paid-for version of MM, but the free version will do all that the volunteers need.

In the main I'm dealing with people who have never done any sort of mapping before, so to get them going I've written a little introduction to MM. The big problem with getting started with map making seems to be finding data, so in this note I've given them a way of getting vectors from Google Earth and plotting them in MM. It's a very trivial example, I'm afraid.
