Can anyone provide any information as to what are the best map making programs? Especially for beginners - thanks.

Location: Planet Earth, most of the time.
I suspect most people don't use a map making or map building software. They tend to be costly and there's not that many of them. I think - most players use GIMP or PhotoShop and they simply draw their own maps by hand.

Yep, thats how I did mine, I've drawn it using old versions of corel photopaint and photoshop. Since mine uses real counties as provinces I used a real map of the country with the administrative borders and used the game maker to fine tune the province outline, than exported it and used that, I gave it some texture, copy pasted some mountains and forests from "20th century Europe" and there it is.. banana

For pure attractive cartography, Tilemill is becoming the standard, particularly for interactive maps. But this works with actual geodata instead of markup like GIMP or Inkscape. So if you're dealing with fictional geography you'd still need to create the basic inputs using a vector GIS platform like QGIS or geojson.io
