Any Good Free Map Building Software Out There? (1 Viewer)

I cannot recommend any free software. For floorplans and maps I use SmartDraw...and it is definately not free*...but it is some damned good software.

*I got mine on sale for $200!

Is the free version half decent? I'm not bothered about it looking anything special. I just want an idea of the layout to calculate journey times and figure out where stuff will go.
Yeah, it's good - personally, I don't see a big need to use the pay one - though it is in general quite pictorial. If you are wanting something more mappy, more black-lines-on-a-scroll, there might be others. Actually there might be a more mappy option in inkarnate, can't recall at the minute.
