Hello all!

I was wondering which digital on online software do you use for mapping out your land?
I've got the first screenshots of my land from Google Earth, but now I'm looking for the right software (or website) to map the land.
I want to do something like this:
Thanks in advance for your advise!

Thomas, welcome to the forums!

I feel what you are looking for is software for permaculture design.

I found your post in our zero replies from 6 days ago.

Here is a thread that might offer some suggestions:

Since the thread is an older thread I hope that Erik Lee's links are still available.

This also might offer some understanding:

Hey,

I understand that this is for a permaculture courses,
I work as a land surveyor.
The issue for me to answer this question is not lack of answers but a surplus, can you please be specific about your needs.

Costs, processing time, simplicity, educational freebees, learning resources online, sizing of land, Accuracy needs, X,Y importance vs Z importance,

Photos used, GNSS, data collection methods.

Surveying included or only GIS?

and would you like some Surveying learning materials?
I think some basic Levelling sheets could be helpful, for teaching earthworks.

Regards,
Alex
