Floor map tool

Hi,

Does anyone know of a reasonably SIMPLE tool I could use to sketch a floor
map of our building, similar to the examples provided with iPrint?
Everything I've found so far is complicated doesn't produce nearly the
clear, clean types of maps in the examples...

Thanks.

Tim

Re: Floor map tool

Have you looked at any of the home design programs? Pricewise they
will probably be the lower priced choices.

Past that I like VIsio (personal choice is 2000, the pre-MS version).

I agree, Visio 2000 is what I use. But since it is no longer available
you will have to buy the 2003 Professional version as the Standard version
does not include building and floor plan tools. MS$ will, however, let
you download the Professional version for a 30 day Trial.

If your floor plans are large, as in they cover whole floors of the
building, use the save as option and save the drawing as a TIFF file. This
will give you a high quality image of your floor plan that you can resize
and save as a PNG to better fit your users web browsers.
