I have tried to find what I need using Google, but I can't seem to use the right wording in their search.

My property has many features, some encompassing small areas and others many acres. I would like to make a "map" or outline. I would be esp. interested in the area surrounding the house which has several garden plots and grassy areas.

Your suggestions for possible wording for a search or actual programs will be appreciated.

I googled "map making software" and came up with this. There is a free (gratis) version and a pro version ($400), but I have the impression the free version will work for what you need. Hope this helps.

Many thanks for the replies! I will now proceed with checking out the suggestions.

"S--": I want to make a scaled "drawing" of the area around and including the house, outlining the various plots of ground and the uses thereof. Distant friends often ask me where my garden plots are, etc., and I would like to be able to e-mail them a "file."

If you create a map "file" using the program I found, it's likely whoever you send it to will need the same program that created it to open it.

As my signature says, "Thankful for TSG!"

I am very grateful for the attention given to my Thread! It will take me a while to check all the possibilities now before me. Right now I am engaged in time consuming chores, as well as my favorite hobby of gardening, here at "The Farm."

I invite you to take a look at my website to see "my place." My 'sig' gives a link.
