Anthony G's Field Maps

/About the Maps

Within the last year, I've started to attend more milsim style games in Ontario. One of the elements I felt was lacking among several of the fields I attended was a high-quality field map. Most fields and events tend to use a combination of Google satellite views, with a bit of photoshop work to create what you might call a "COD-style" map. These types of maps are quick to make and easy for the average person to understand; however, they tend to lack a certain "milsim" aesthetic. As a result, I've started to create my own field maps based on the MGRS coordinate system. The style I'm going for is similar to a hiking/trail map, with a combination of elements you might expect to see in an orienteering map.

A high quality map not only aids in the immersive qualities of milsim, but is a useful tool for team and squad leads. A good map can help quickly orient players unfamiliar with an AO, and is a useful tool for communicating player locations and on-field movement.

My maps use a combination of source material provided by event/field owners, combined with open-source geospatial data provided by Natural Resources Canada available. I use a combination of CAD and other vector-processing software which results in maps with infinite resolution that makes them much more usable at a variety of scales. While the maps may look precise and "professional" I am by no means a surveyor or cartographer, and no such guarantee is made for the accuracy of information represented.

/Map Features

My two favorite features to see in any map that makes it more useful to me as a player are topography lines, and some indication of scale; whether it be a measured grid increment or a bar scale. The features of my maps include:
  • Vector-based, drawn to scale
  • MGRS coordinate system
  • Alpha-numeric grid reference
  • Topographic contours
  • Building outlines
  • Man-man features
  • Vegetation features
  • Surface treatments
  • Any GPS/Geo-located features you provide

/Future Maps

If you'd like me to draw a map for your event/field, send me a PM and I'll give you a quote. Under certain circumstances I may consider trading my maps for field time etc... Unfortunately these maps take time to make, and information for a particular site is not always available. I will let you know up-front what I am able to include in a map. If you have an existing map with trails or other features identified, this helps add to the quality of the map. If you have GPS waypoints or tracks I can also add these to my maps. Generally, the more information you can provide up front, the better a map I can make.

This is somewhat of an ongoing experiment for me. So the maps should only get better.

I am more than open to suggestions and feedback, if there are features people want to see etc.

I just received a map for ALR commissioned from AnthonyG

It is everything I ever wanted in a map but had up to now never been able to get. The quality and attention to detail is excellent. This map is professional quality and worth the very reasonable price charged for the service.

Anyone who has a field should contact Anthony to have a map completed. Communication throughout the project was prompt and the work was done ahead of schedule.

I am a very happy customer!

I tried to download the Picton map in the pdf format and used the password airsoftcanada and I must be a complete dunderhead or something because I just keep going round and round and well I just finally gave up.... sucks to be an old fart the age of 67

P.S. I also sold my tablet cause I couldn't figure how to work it, I also did the upgrade to windows 10 and re-did my laptop, and desktop systems back to windows 7. I use a flip phone but have to go into the local phone store and have then delete both voice mail and text messages. If a voice mail or text message comes in when my phone is on I just ignore them because I have never learned to us those options. I use a flip phone over one of those touch screen phones with all those apps what ever in heck they are

AnthonyG - those are awesome, great work!

pzrwest - I had to go through the "download" wait cycle twice to get it to start, could be where the files are being hosted. With Anthony's permission I'll throw the files onto my server for you if you want
