If you are willing to spend the money; you can also get Campaign Cartographer (http://www.profantasy.com)

Also look at RPTools.net (http://www.rptools.net)

Here's another one: https://live.gnome.org/Dia

This is a general-use diagram designer. It has a set of graphics for floorplans. Also useful for campaign planning and Matrix node design.

Another option (in development): Cityographer (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inkwellideas/cityographer-city-generator-and-mapping-software)

Though most of the graphics shown are linked/focused on fantasy-based maps, there are modern, far future and post apocalyptic tile sets being developed.

I was looking to buy this but I do not know how useful it would be to me. Making floorplans has always been a weakness of mine in my games and I would not like to use anything too difficult. I am looking for more of a drag and drop system.

I use to have the previous version. I created an entire world to populate it with cities, towns and dungeons.
Several of my town were mapped with some of the buildings in them mapped.
Everything was on my master map that I could click and bring up the other maps I created.

It uses the vector system like CADS. 

I will admit that it takes a little getting use to but one you do things can be done quickly.

I seem to remember that one really old version of Campaign Cartographer came with the AD&D 2nd Edition core rules CD-ROM.  Which I happen to have lying around in a box somewhere.  I wonder...
 
I'm gonna have to check and see if I still have that somewhere and get it installed.  Thanks for the reminder on CC!

I think that might have been the forgotten realms Atlas which if I remember correctly CC was used to make it.

I've been using it to map out my Ork Underground "mega-dungeon."

EDIT: OP, thanks for the find. Makes my life a whole lot easier for the more upscale runs.

Homestyler (http://www.homestyler.com/home) does floorplans as well, and will loft them into 3D, for those looking for a bit of map porn.

Sure, as I finish it in bits and pieces. From what I have gathered the OU is fairly large. Pioneer Square alone (the initial extent of the Seattle underground) is 1,500,000 sq.ft., and from Everret to Puyallup is almost 40 mi. That is a lot of real estate to fill. :D

Just remember that not all of the Underground is contiguous; also, I imagine that plenty of its distance for those 40 miles is nothing but a single 3m diameter sewer pipe, with 5cm pipes dumping into it...

Yeah i kinda picture it as Pockets of livable space. And if you want a good example of how the Underground should probably work read Street Lethal by Steven Barnes (http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/0812510348/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&condition=used). Pretty good SR feel to it in general, but great "barrens" and subterranean descriptions.

That was my thought, and how I've planned on going about it as well. Start with a decent sized area, i.e. the Goblin Market and more easily accessable areas, and then design bits and pieces as needed.

We'll soon have a mission generator we can work with thanks to Harebrained Schemes and all the people that kickstarted it.  (You're welcome, BTW.).

While not a program, thought this following kickstarter might be of interest to some:

 Two-Story, 100 Store Mall from Fabled Environments (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1359478628/fabled-environments-a-two-story-mall-for-tabletop?ref=users)
