Creating Custom Maps? What Software?

I’d love a way to make some custom maps on OS X. It could come in handy for things like visiting relatives where I want to give them a local map with a handful of specific locations marked out.

But I took on a new job where I will be driving around the county to places I don’t usually drive and I want to mark out food locations that I like since I’m a picky eater!! So that if I’m in a certain part of town, I can look at the map and see what my options are from a list of places I decided in advance. I’d like it to be a PDF map, rather than an interactive iOS Maps thing. So that I can more easily share it.

Screenshot a location in Apple Maps, mark it up with Figma/Preview/etc?

Could definitely work. Isn’t as clean and future proof as something that was a dedicated mapping application but I will definitely keep it as a backup plan if nothing exists! :slight_smile:

I would second @JohnAtl. I just happened to need a map of an area to plan some construction and the tool was just the ticket. And the cost can’t be beat.

I’ve been using Ahoy MapMaker from the App Store. It does a decent job.
