I am interested in helping with mapping. I spent a little time and tried to map up an area that I am hoping would be looked at below is the map as well as the other map that i used as a reference point. I sincerly appologize for the size of the images.

The first one looks nice. Not sure what the second one represents?

I think the second one is a pic of where the red box is located on the first one. And I think the first one looks fantastic! Scout flaunted a high-res version of it in the ooc.

Let me clarify this, the big high res map, I DID NOT DO. I just placed a red box representing the area i tried. The other map with the grid is the one i did

I rather like both myself, pretty neat to pinpoint yourself on a map, no?

I do know that Tehya and Tam were working on maps, if you can get with the two of them and you all sit down, discuss and put out one map, that would be even bettah ;)

I would like to aquire some software that would allow me to do the whole map of of everything as one large file, then i'd just write an html or something to do imaging mapping and make it scroll and such, but i dont' have any programs to do that with, the only program i have is photoshop CS and i'm not making a huge map in that because it would take forever, I mean i could but it would be rather difficult.

I did manage to figure out the relationship between the red box and the second map. All by myself ;)

What I don't understand is what the second map is intended to portray, as in what city is it?

If you look at the bigger version of the first image (the one with the red box), that city is marked as being "The Reach, a small naval base".
