I am looking for a verb to describe the creation of a map as in the following paragraph:
Unfortunately, due to strong winds during the journey home, the maps you have painstakingly ___ were blown off your ship and are now forever lost to the depths of the ocean."
The map is on a physical medium. I also intend to put some emphasis to the fact that the map maker had put in significant effort in making their map, so a verb that suggests this would be ideal. I'll accept the answer that sounds most natural and conveys the notions in this paragraph.
The simplest word that comes to my mind is "drawn", but that sounds too generic. One can draw any generic diagram.
I can think of "draft", but that sounds like the map is a draft version, i.e. sketchily drawn and not the final product.
Is there a verb to better describe this action in this context?
