Mapping Question


Recommended Posts

I went to a local station and visited the graphics department. I watched them make a map from scratch.


They use a template with their standard background and stuff. (They use Photoshop.) Then they paste in screenshot from something like google maps of the area to make a map of that the producer sent to them. Then they draw in the needed roads using the screenshot. The particular guy I watched uses some sort of pen to draw on a board as his mouse.


Then he saves it and it is sent to the control room through a program that is offered free by Google.
