This tutorial sometimes assumes that you already know how to make a map in World Machine and use the Map Maker. If you don't then I recommend you follow the following tutorials for help.
- An Evening With Funky - Let's make a map by Funky (3 videos, first one is about setting up World Machine)
- Adding maps to CXL with UIM by Funky
- Tutorial Mapping I by Alex
I used Funkys video tutorials (An Evening With Funky - Let's make a map) to build my template in World Machine. Since then I have added stuff to it as I have learnt more about World Machine.
I will however, try to cover some of the basics. I will also include tips to help making maps a little quicker and easier.

Thanks to a large donation we are covered this month and next month. Ad money should be sent by then to cover a further two months.Dismiss Notice
I would like to see us always have at least a months worth in advance but that will mean constant donations. Seems we are not as busy as we were years ago so guess it's the main reason for low donations.
Hope you all are keeping safe
