I recommend that you read the Walls manual, which contains 22 pages on SVG roundtripping, and then read Jeff Bartlett's excellent article on SVG Roundtripping with Walls to get a better understanding of the process.

If you have questions (and you probably will!), search CaveChat first for relevant topics. If you have questions that still aren't answered elsewhere, then you're ready to start asking specific questions about it here.

Good luck!

Yea, it's not a one step process- despite the naming implication- Your second map is actually a combined product of Walls and Illustrator.

I concur. As Dave said, if you have specific questions or hit a snag along the way, we're happy to help.
