how do you create a new map from scratch.
Means..
the map is in your hands in papar and you want to scan it and use it?

Is this posible?

Hi,

This is possible.
Please try QGis 0.8 from www.qgis.org and its georeferencer plugin.
This allows you to compute a world file for your scanned map.

With this world file you should be able to include it in SharpMap.
