Today Sue had organised Jeffery Madsen to give a talk on, Creating Maps in Family Stories.
While I haven't used maps in stories, they are something I use frequently. He explained what a map was, why we would use a map and what is the map showing the reader. Jeffery also explained that by using different types of maps, the reader is able to see the location of a particular place.
Sources of maps, copyright and attribution were also covered. We were then given a lesson in how to put maps into our word document. How to manipulate them and how to organise the text. Something for me to play with.
It was a very useful and informative talk, from a gentleman, who loves maps.
