I've been mapping since my 14 years when I decided to make a map of summer cottage surroundings. Repeated failures in trying to make a good map brought me to excelent book for orienteering mappers writen by Z. Lenhart, the famous Czech mapper. This book and also him personally helped me to pass over beginer's troubles. To see my mapping experiences look at the list of maps I've made.


14 years of mapping
