Caveink is a set of Inkscape extensions for drawing cave maps

------
DISCLAIMER: This project is a solution for drawing medium sized cave maps,
generally no longer than a few kilometers (if in 1:1000 or 1:500). For bigger
projects, consider employing Therion, since they are probably going to be slow
and painful to work on in Inkscape.

------
DISCLAIMER: This project is still a work in progress. Feel free to help with
testing and to contribute. Any kind of help is welcome.
------

These extensions add the following features to Inkscape:
- A library of cave map symbols following UIS conventions
- Fill patterns for carpeting areas with rocks/pebbles/sand/clay/silt
- Convenient way of styling "speleo" lines (ie. step/pit, dripline)
- Easy offset "windows" for showing intersecting passages 
- Tools for merging drawings from multiple files
- Morphing drawings to centerlines a'la Therion
- Direct import of centerlines from Survex .3d files
- Import capability for PocketTopo "Therion export" drawings
- Easy generation of scale bars and coordinate-annotated grids

The easiest way to get familiar is to follow the installation guide and some
preliminary tutorials at http://jaskinie.jaszczur.org/caveink-beta3/

caveink has been developed from former work by myself and Thomas Holder
(see https://github.com/mteg/inkscape-speleo)
