Damn, I should have been clearer. One that's easy to edit in MS Paint?
Download one of the png versions of the file - MS Paint can edit png files - use the fill tool, pencil, etc.
For a cleaner, more baseline outcome, I use Paint 3D.
Does anyone have a blank OTL map of Africa with rivers from circa the mid 1800s?
Which year? I might be able to whip something up.
That would be cool if you'd be able to! I would say around 1848?
Got some schoolwork to attend to first, but I'll see what I can do.
OK, it doesn't have rivers, but there's this excerpt from the wiki's 1848 map:
I've always had my doubts about that map. For example, the Portuguese and Spanish are too well established, and the British in South Africa have annexed a ton of native kingdoms that should be shown.
Seems like the best place to put this - hopefully someone finds these useful...
Behold: the Giga-BAM
BE WARNED: these files are not for those with older machines. Why? Because these maps are at 1:900,000 scale in QGIS, and the smallest of the maps is 21.6k x 12k pixels - call it 260 megapixels.
And then there's the 4.2 gigapixel (94,789 x 44,341) world map.
Unfortunately my gaming rig couldn't handle exporting the entire world map in one go via QGIS, so I had to export 9 separate files and stitch them together by hand in Photoshop. This means there are some errors - shouldn't be more than borders etc being 3 or 4 pixels out - but if you need that level of fidelity just be aware of this.
Like what? We do need a blank sub-region globe map
BTW, Omniatlas just created a map of Europe in 6 AD. Your opinions on it?
They've had that Roman Empire colour in the key for ages. Glad they finally made use of it.
Does anyone have a blank map of eastern Europe (with Finland)? I'm particularly interested in the interwar era.
Would this do, by any chance?
You know, that's actually pretty good. Thanks.
You are welcome.
