I am very visuospatial. I was previously a graphic designer for over 5 yrs. I am constantly sketching ideas and guilds and patterns... yeah, I am pretty much obsessed with it.
But I "waste" so much time redrawing things when I want to see what it would look like to put tree X next to tree Y instead of next to pond A, etc.
But also being a physician, I am fairly logical and detail oriented... I want to get my maps planned fairly accurately.
I may end up planting by "feel", but right now, I think I need more structure.
I hope I did not indicate that I discourage mapping. I think it's great practice.
