I am giving a mapping clinic to some geography teachers and as I'm not much of a map maker, am wondering if there is a simple, step by step guide that I could access that goes through the steps to make a school yard map using google earth as a base map with final drawing in OCAD 6.
For our field session we: took a google earth screen capture, did a field copy with mylar, prepared a clean copy with mylar, scanned the mylar and saved it as a BMP which we've opened as a template in OCAD 6. It would be nice if this or something similar was already written up with same maps for the various stages.
I would always use ISSOM rather than ISOM symbols.
OCAD 6 link here...
...or you could use the material from our Mapping Clinic in Calgary in 1982 ;-)
I think I still have a copy somewhere... Have you forgotten what you learned?
thanks everyone. Saturday will be the third clinic at the third school so these links should give me the materials to provide a good reference document for the teachers. What's interesting is that it is geography, not phys ed teachers that are taking the clinics. They see it as a way to make geography interesting and to get the students out of the classroom.
