    Hi all! There’s a surprising lack of good, large, equirectangular paleogeographic maps. My plan with this thread is to produce high quality maps of all periods in time, taking into account post-glacial rebound, climate, water currents, etc. Most online are just maps of our continents put in a different place.

    I plan to begin with 65 MYA (Million Years Ago).

    If you plan to make an addition to the thread, the requirements are:
    1) It’s alright to use a base for the map. However, Do Not copy it exactly.
    2) It’s alright to add hypothetical elements, such as lakes, rivers, and island arcs.
    3) Use the 2K-BAM, it’s not too small but not too large.
    4) Take into account at least these three things- Climate, Water Currents, and Continental Plates. For the water currents and climate, watch Artifexian’s videos. They are short, concise, and informative.

    I hope we can all have fun and feel satisfied making some of the first high-quality paleogeographic maps on the internet.

    I personally am going to make a rough outline of the climate and temperature of 65 MYA, and then work on Africa.

    A very helpful guide, as it in Robinson.

    I am in progress with the 1100 x 2200 65MYA map. Does anyone have any resources/maps that would help?

    I'm pretty certain that the depression in central Greenland is an artifact of the ice sheet.

    These might serve as good base-maps in 8K.

    Even has country borders if you need them.

    This looks cool! I love the amount of detail you are putting into it.
