  1. Optimal New England borders survey

    So I saw that someone brought the idea of an optimal borders survey back recently, so I thought I'd repost one I'd made a few years ago. With independent New England being more popular on the board now than it was when I first posted it I thought it'd be a good time to post it.
  2. Base Map Metrication

    So this is something I've been thinking about and working on on another site, and I wanted to see what people thought here. While the general base maps are all okay and have served us well for years, the thing is that information on one base can't easily be transferred to another. The scales...
  3. A Loyal City on the Hill -The Commonwealth Wank

    So I posted this in the main thread in the Maps and Graphics thread, but I figured since this was mostly text it would probably be a better fit here. I know that the American Revolution might’ve been done to death, but I figured I might as well dip into that well again. So I’d like to present to...
  4. A Loyal City on the Hill - The Commonwealth Wank

    So for those of you who were around before I left the board, I had a TL called the Commonwealth Wank. I've been asked to revive it or start it over now that I'm back, and I've been thinking about it more and more. So, with a bit of inspiration from @Kanan, I am pleased to announce that I have...
  5. Deep Impact

    Currently watching Deep Impact which is a great movie. And I figure that since a 7 mile wide comet didn't smack into the Outer Banks in the late 90s, it now counts as alternate history. So I'm wondering something. Morgan Freeman makes reference to other countries creating contingency plans for...
  6. How best to unite the planet?

    I figure the best PoD to have a single global state by modern day would be before 1900, specifically the 19th century due to that being the age of truly globe spanning empires. In 1900, there were only 78 sovereign states on the planet, a number that continued to fall. So allowing for a pre-1900...
  7. Universal Ecoregion Key?

    Just wondering if there’s a universal ecoregion key. And if not should we create one?
  8. The all-purpose GIS Thread

    So I figured I'm probably not the only person here that uses QGIS, so I figured I'd make this thread. Here you can post GIS resources, help with GIS, finding and generating resources. Reason I'm making this thread right now is I need some altitude rasters for Greenland and Antarctica without...
  9. Plimoth Colony Retains its original borders

    So I'm not sure how plausible it is or what would need to happen, but what would the world look like if the Plimoth Colony retained the claimed borders that the original charter prescribed, which are everything on the North American continent between the 40th and 48th parallels north? I'll post...
  10. The VT-BAM project

    So I've been working a lot in QGIS recently, and I figured I shouldn't be the only one to benefit from the work I'm doing in there. So I'm please to announce the beginning of the V-BAM project. What I will present in this thread is a series of maps at the resolution of 1 pixel for every 30...
  11. VT45's Map Room

    I have been making maps ever since I first joined this board over 10 years ago. And since I've been thinking of starting a Patreon to help support my mapmaking (and maybe start up some Let's Plays on YouTube if I can buy the stuff I need to record games), I figured now was a good time to start...
  12. Mayflower lands in New York Harbor

    So when the Mayflower set off for the New World, they had their sights set on the northernmost part of what was Virginia at the time, specifically the mouth of the Hudson River. But because of storms blowing them off course, they landed first at Provincetown and then Plymouth in Massachusetts...
  13. The Robinson BAM Map Thread

    So it's come to my attention that while the QBAM, MBAM, and Worlda maps all look like Robinson projections, they're all quite slightly off. As we can see from this map here, much of the Old World is placed a bit too far west, and North America skewed a bit too far east. So what I would like to...

  19. The ATL Company of the Month Contest Main Thread

    This is an idea that I've been batting around for a while. And I've decided to post it now. Maybe after our discussion the other day, this will draw Æsir out and get him to show the stuff he was telling me about earlier.:D But I digress. This contest shall be held every month using...
  20. The Map Conversion Thread

    I noticed while looking around that there is no devoted thread to asking or posting converted maps from one projection to another. So I decided to make one. This thread will be for anyone who has maps that need to be converted from one projection to another, or for anyone who has the software...
