In this lesson, you’re going to learn how to develop a basemap based on your skill level and how you go about acquiring your topographic map. There are three separate tutorials: level beginner where we use simple and free tools like Google Earth and Google Maps, level intermediate where we explore how to use a graphic design software and level professional where we do a survey of the site either by hiring a contractor or doing it ourselves.
