Help me Obi Wan - Looking for User Friendly OSX / Mac Mapping Software

I'm looking for some user-friendly OSX Mapping software. Primarily looking to map out some dungeon, underground environments. If the end rest can be used in commercial projects, so much the better.

OSX is not a target-rich environment for mapping software it seems.

Please, point me in a direction or three ;)


  1. MapForge (http://www.mapforge-software.com/) runs on both Windows and Mac OS X. Good for both indoor and outdoor battlemaps.

  2. I use Adobe Illustrator but that's a bit pricey and takes a bit of experience to get nice results. Hexographer has a companion program called Dungoenographer that might be worth a look.

  3. MapTool from RPTools may be something for you to consider: http://www.rptools.net/downloadsw/

  4. I like this one a lot Illwinter's Floorplan Generator:

    MapForge was a big let down for me. Not good.
