It seems to me the best approach would be to set up a simple spreadsheet
with columns such as:
and with proper attention to the formulae, you would quickly end up with
a list of sets of coordinates which you would then plot. I don't see
any aids in Inkscape to do this and attempting to draw the coords from
the little numbers at the bottom of the GUI that run with the cursor
position would be more hit than miss.
Inkscape would give a great map when complete - you could add features
to it at will - but I think it needs a separate bit of number crunching
first. There is a fantastic range of land and land-use clip art at:
and they are all vector format! You must have a look at that site.
Please let us know whet you end up doing.
