So I’ve seen many of the map tutorials and all the cute maps. I would like to make one and I’ve got a lot of out of town guests who I think could really use it.
Despite all the examples I’ve seen, I’m still having issues wrapping my brain about how to make the map. I’ve started and restarted a few times and was wondering if anyone had some better ideas of how to approach it. So far I’ve been tracing the route people should take and trying to add in major roadways. I want it to be readable and I’ve considered just letting google do the work and posting a couple screen shots.
Part of my issues, I think, is that I have stops to locate in three cities. The area I live in is a group of cities that function as one area.

I did my map my hand and I also have 3 cities that function as one on my map- except mine is probably a lot easier just because its an Island. I made dotted lines to disconnect the cities.
My map isn’t supposed to be used though to help them get anywhere though. It’s not to scale and nothing other than the names of the waterways, piers, and cities are listed- its just pretty.

My main goal with my map was to include the actaul address (because let’s face it, like 90% of my guests have gps things) and then to include a very SIMPLE map that would give guests the general impression of how far the venue was from major freeways

Thanks everyone. I ended up tossing the powerpoint idea and switching to Google Maps to make a My Map. This worked out and served it’s purpose, I’m more concerned with providing my out of towners a useful map … even though all the ones people have been making are so cute!
