I am doing research for other people on where their relatives were and what they took part in during the first world war. I have found that copies of maps are very popular in the final report. I am seriously considering purchasing linesman, but am unsure what version I would need. I only need to be able to show people the trenches and where they were, I am not looking at using it to hike around the french/belgian countryside. Can someone please give me some advice on what I would need to purchase, initial software & dvd's.
Also, with regard to copyright, can I just make sure that I reference the material (this is enough for the Australian War Museum - I've already talked to them re photos etc) or would I be required to pay a fee.

The McMaster trench maps cover every Belgium / French location and their copyright notice allows extracts for personal research
