We will be using Macromedia Freehand for this project—if you have any questions about using this program that are not covered in this handout, please ask your instructor or check the tutorial section of the Macromedia program. If there is a reference line in the map, put it in by clicking on the ‘Line’ tool in the toolbar probably located along the left of the screen. Place the cursor on one end of the line (possibly labeled ‘A’), and keep the mouse key down, as you follow the line to the other end (possibly labeled ‘B’). If you want to adjust the width of the stroke or the angles of its joins, go to the Windows menu, and then click on ‘Inspectors’ and ‘Stroke’—a toolbox will appear that allows you to do that. Select a Pattern for the fill—something simple and geometric is traditional, and you may want to just copy whatever pattern the original mapmaker used. Dotted lines (such as to indicate a flotation sample or soil column) can be obtained by selecting ‘Pattern’ from the Stroke toolbox, and selecting a pattern that gives you the dotted effect that you like. If there is a legend, use the Rectangular shape tool from the toolbar to produce the base rectangles for the legend, and then use the Fill toolbox to match whatever fill you used in the map. Most of it will be soil descriptions, along the general line of “10YR 3/2 very dark grayish brown silt mottled with 10YR 4/2 yellowish brown sand.” Copy the handwritten text, making sure that you have corrected all spelling errors that you notice (“modeling” means “mottling” for example). If you have any questions in the translation of text, refer to the original map in the George Reeves paperwork notebook. Label the map at top, making sure it doesn’t overlap with any other text or lines, using Times New Roman font, but 12 point boldface. , Profile, and any other information included along the top of your map—NOT including the original date the map was produced. Now print out your map on the 2200 printer, making sure that the page setup is correct—if the map is in a landscape format, you will have to go to the Page Setup and change the setup to Landscape to make sure that your entire map prints. Finally, export it as a 300 .dpi .tiff file, by going to the Export command under the File menu, selecting .tiff as the type, and hitting the Setup key to make sure the .dpi is correct. Source.
