I'd be dead keen to learn what you know...I'm in Richmond have access to mac's & pc's (prefer the
mac though)...and also reckon I'd be able to do a pretty good job on the pre 98 routes at moonarie as a
first piece of homework from the master...send me a pm or an email if you want to hook up

ps. I'm travelling a lot the next if i don't reply im not being rude...just busy

The best program for making photo topos is Adobe Illustrator, with a little help from Adobe Photoshop and PDF maker. There are other programs around which can do similar things. You might even be able to find yourself a Linux version if you look hard enough.

I can provide training for the basics if anyone is interested.

The more people who are skilled up in making topos (and have the time to do it) I think would be great for the whole community. It would be great if some other people could help out with getting the ACA on-line (free) guide website a bit more sorted out, as there are some big holes (as well as some great fully up to date guides).

Anyone interested get in touch with me. 0425 883 719 or
