    This thread will be where you can request paleogeographic maps.

    To request one, all you need to do is state:

    - the time
    - the projection
    - whether you want labels or not
    - whether you want the modern continent areas to be coloured or not.

    Note that ancient coastlines can only be simulated back to 750 Ma.

    I can do any time back to 4.27 billion years ago.

    You're using Algol's new video as a resource aren't you? Let's try 2,050 million years ago, during the Rhyacian. I like the look of the scattered archipelagos around this time. Perhaps make it in WorldA format if possible, and with labels. Colouring is up to you, I don't really mind.

    I am indeed. BTW, if you are on here, thank you for making this possible!
    Unfortunately, I do not know the WorldA projection. Will Robinson be okay?

    @zesamofdepast Robinson will be fine, I believe it is the WorldA projection anyway.

    @zesamofdepast it turned out looking really good! I'm glad I chose that time period for the map. I could suggest more dates but I might wait for others to make their own requests first.

    Well, here's some extra resources: http://phl.upr.edu/projects/visual-paleo-earth

    Now, Worlda for every given timestamp, without labels and with modern continents coloured. Well actually no, that would take forever, but a worlda or QBAM of the following would be appreciated:

    66 million years ago
    105 million years ago
    150 million years ago
    220 million years ago
    280 million years ago
    450 million years ago

    Note that this would be for a minor side-project of mine so there's no rush at all.

    BTW, I don't know what projection the Worlda is. Will Robinson be OK?

    Are you using a specific tool to make this?
