    I need to make a map. Software?
    I need to make a map for a website. Can anyone recommend software or a program that I can use on my Mac to make a map similar to the one that I attached? Please understand, I simply don't have the funds to buy some uber expensive program, so is there something that will allow me to make a decent map for $100 or so? Any help is appreciated.

    Most of the maps like that are handmade illustrations i think.

    I'd use illustrator / photoshop if you have this.

    Yeah but Illustrator/Photoshop doesn't cost 100 dollars. >_>"

    True but professionally made maps as the OP showed as example aren't often made on 100$ programs...

    You might want to try these free alternatives:

    Inkscape instead of illustrator

    The Gimp instead of photoshop
