The system I use and the article I wrote on mapping in Shadowrun: Anarchy.

I'm running a play-by-post game of Anarchy, so I can't just scribble down a map on a piece of paper or a whiteboard for my players.

Are there any tools/programs you know of that can easily make a node map that won't rely on my leet skillz in MS Paint? For example, how did you do the blue hexagon map in the top-right corner of the post?

Does your  phone have a camera?

Yes, but I'm not interested in a draw + photograph + upload + paste photo/link process. That's no less work than just doing something crude in ASCII.

I used Power Point for the map in the article. But you could use Word or anything with clip art or object art.
