I tend to average about twice as long drawing each area compared to fieldworking it, for sprint maps. For bush maps it's generally about half.

Yeah it's having to draw many of the features twice that does it - once for the outline and again to fill it in.

That, and just the sheer density of features. I worked out once that Curtin Uni was 2-3x as dense (in terms of shapes per square km) as Hill Park Dale - including the use of rocky ground dots on the latter.

It's even more dense if you're drawing Tooms on the map.

About double the time for this morning's field work - could be quicker when I do not have to search for options.

BTW What is the ISSOM Symbol for a Tooms?

tRicky:
T

Juffy:
Isn't that a Fodder Rack? Sounds about right. :)

tRicky:
No T is for a small tower.
Feb 24, 2016 9:08 AM # 
Juffy:
That works too.

LOST_Richard:
I will add a random Tooms and see if you can find it
Feb 24, 2016 10:25 AM # 
tRicky:
I won't because I'll be over east. I don't think Tooms will be there either.

Tooms:
Wouldn't it be a Christian cross type symbol 't' for a tomb?
Feb 24, 2016 10:33 AM # 
LOST_Richard:
Are you in a Tomb?
Feb 24, 2016 10:35 AM # 
tRicky:
We can only wish.

Apparently the symbol for charcoal burning ground is becoming obsolete so perhaps you can use that.

tRicky:
Ahh geez, I was going to create a few of those around my new sprint map just to confuse people.

TrishTash:
Maybe a Tooms should be mapped as t

t as in a little tower and T as a big tower :)
Feb 25, 2016 4:34 AM # 
tRicky:
That's not ISSOM compliant.
Feb 25, 2016 10:10 AM # 
Tooms:
It's more an ISSOM complaint.
