Many people like using Campaign Cartographer 2, or some other software to create digital maps.
There are two types of tactical maps you will find here. Floorplans, and Triumphant Grand Tactical. Floorplans are detailed 25mm maps and layouts, and you'll find floorplans on the 25mm pages. There is too much detail in floorplans for it to be practical for me to provide you with a map key.
The Triumphant Grand Tactical maps are usually generated on a scale of .2 Miles per hex. In plain English that means each hex is about 1,056 feet (352 yards or 322 meters, if you prefer) from one hex side to the opposite hex side.
Triumphant Grand Tactical maps feature elevation lines so you can get an idea of the 3D layout of the land. Here is a sample of what elevation looks like:
Tactical Maps feature landmarks, terrain, buildings, and obstacles that are not present on strategic maps, or on floorplans. Each map you will find here will contain a map key below the map that provides specific details about that map as well... Each hex is numbered on the Trimphant Grand Tactical maps as well, so you can cross reference map symbol locations by hex number if you like.Strategic Maps
Strategic Maps are generated on a scale of 5 miles per hex. For those of you that are metric oriented each hex is 8.04 Km from side to side. On strategic maps, elevation lines indicate cliffs, or bluffs.
The coordinates on strategic maps are Alphanumeric. To find the coordinates of any 5 mile hex, simply go across alphabetically, and then count the number of full hexes up until you reach the landmark
Here is a strategic map key. On triumphant grand tactical maps many of the symbols are the same, so this is a good reference chart for most of the maps you will find here... You'll find hexes on the maps with mixed symbols as well, such as hilly forests, and forested mountains, streams and towns, coastline, and such...
