This old post of my own got me thinking as I re-read the thread. What new functions would we want from a new version of the map tool? a few idle thoughts:Thought: That map creator tool would be better if it also had a Topographic mode (including rivers, and without the ice sheets?).
I think there are a few rivers that would be somewhat like our Nile, both the Mississippi and either the Amazon or the Paraguay river.The vastness of a green Sahara would of course be interesting with new rivers, lakes and probably more differing biomes than one would initially realize given the variation of geology in the area.
But the place i wanna see details about is the lower Mississippi. A large river with many tributaries flowing through the desert. In som ways like the Nile, in others not.
