Four Winds Nature Institute Mapping Workshop

We had a fun, whirlwind of  a workshop yesterday evening with the Four Winds Nature Institute.  I wasn’t exactly sure which direction the workshop would go, so I’m now putting up a post with links to what we covered, and a few extra tutorials.  If you have any questions about these topics, please be in touch!
