Right now maps are made by a fairly tedious process.
I look at all the images from a day, select which ones will be used for the map and then manually drag them to a table in Pages. The images become table cell background images, set as “Scale to Fill.”
The ideal ratio for the images, is around 3:4, the original TV aspect ratio that the game was played on. As the maps progress am setting the row slightly wider (2.27:3) because I actually like the slight black line hinting at the border.

I am 100% sure I can make this process easier with ImageMagick. It is question of finding the time to save time.
