    I've been doing some reading on the 1898 Fashoda Incident. There isn't much details on competing claims. The OTL settlement of the Anglo-French agreements of 1898 and 1899 appear to meet the British aims of control over the Nile River basin and the Upper Nile area. The French objectives were to...

    So it turns out that when you put a 45 x 45 grid on the 16,200 x 8,100 pixel maps founds on Natural Earth III you get approximate circles of latitude and longitude. Handy for getting those straight boundaries

    With conflicting colonial claims and alternate claims to boundaries there are in fact alternate borders that can be used. http://www.davidrumsey.com/luna/servlet/view/search?q==%22Alaskan%20Boundary%20Tribunal%22...

    From this page: http://www.icj-cij.org/docket/index.php?p1=3&p2=3&case=83&code=dt&p3=1 The PDF "Memorial submitted by the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya" has a good number of interesting maps towards the end of the document showing claims through the 19th and 20th century...

    It's an interesting border alright. When you look at a detailed map of it you see that it follows a lot of rivers and lakes in. It kept the Murmansk railroad in Soviet territory. Link to high res map of planned border: http://digi.narc.fi/digi/view.ka?kuid=12696565

    You're using Natural Earth III from http://www.shadedrelief.com/natural3/index.html as source, yes? Not matter what it's going to be a challenge to make it simple. Experiment with converting the source to an indexed image with a very limited colour pallet. Having a plate caree option is for...

  16. Japan As A Us teritory

    All of Japan? No. Parts? Maybe. All the territory that was placed under US control as a result of the San Francisco Peace Treaty could end up as US territory. The Bonin and Volcano Islands seem most plausible (they had American and European settlements before), but the Ryukyu Islands are...

    Apparently Japan was willing to withdraw and create a neutral Manchucko, perhaps even cede parts of its Territory to the Soviet Union, in order to get Moscow to mediate a peace with the Allies. ref...
