I used CorelDraw exclusively for this map. The symbols and north arrow were from the ESRI symbol fonts, and the inset map was pulled off the internet. I tried to obey the point feature guidelines for my label placements as much as possible. I attempted to make curved text for my water features, but I could not get them to come out right.
CorelDraw continues to be a tortuous experience. It is constantly crashing and freezing, and I also have an issue with the ergonomics of the program. There were lots of things that I wanted to do with this lab, but I had trouble figuring out how.
I did learn that there is a plethora of map symbols to be used with the Font tool. A nice bonus of this exercise was that I learned some geography of the Florida Keys.
