Just checked, downloaded an app called "Ortelius". Will play with it a bit today, see what it can do.

Canvas, which I have used for older maps, is no longer supported and not feasible to store an entire continent, if I were to try and do such a task. It's fine for the smaller scale maps I have done. Campaign Cartographer is windows only, and none of the other mac mapping tools seem up to the task.

We need software that allows us to zoom in at will for greater detail, without scaling up lines like a simple pixel image. Not sure what we have out there that can do this.
