I mean depends on your computer. Mine might be able to load it. But that's a big might.
Will a Microsoft Apple survive this?
I have no clue.
Me neither. But since Microsoft Apple is very expensive it should work
You could probably load it in a program that's designed to work with large images(like Photoshop) but most programs will struggle to even load it, and if they do then they will most likely be extremely unstable after doing so. Paint.net for example can be really crash prone when dealing with images larger than 15k in any dimension, This map is 43200x21600 when merged.
Sorry for the last inactivity, but I wanted to inform you that I'm continuing my work on the map, I've almost finished Trentino and I'm completing Sardinia and Bavaria c: Is anyone redoing Switzerland with the right projection?
I've redrawn the south already, happy to accelerate redoing the rest if you want it quickly.
Is there any way to shrink it down to something like 4974×2519?
Great, just take your time doing the rest, don't worry, I don't need it for now
If you did that it would render most of the lines invisible(to test, go and get the MBAM and scale it to 10%), you really need to use cut down sections of the map rather than try to downscale it.
Karnataka and Goa.
Are you proposing that we turn the VT-BAM into a Q-BAM?
You mean something like this?
No. But if making something this big is going to make your computer crash, then we've got a problem.
In my opinion, VT-BAM isn't even supposed to be a world map you use as a whole, but rather as a certain region which needs particular attention. Smaller maps, like QBAM and MBAM, work nicely for the former purpose.
That said, I'd love to see QBAM or MBAM -sized equirectangular blank maps.
Are you sure?
I thought that is what you're going to do eventually.
It will cover the entire world, it's just not intended to cover the whole world at once. I imagine that the final product will be supplied as tiles which can be assembled and cut to cover whatever region you want to. I believe it's mostly intended to be used for country maps and very high detail continental maps, it can't practically be used for world maps at this time (future technology may allow this at some point).
It would probably not be too difficult to make a half sized version which would be a bit more manageable for that purpose, however that would need to be a separate project. The water data could be reused for that, and the admin data could be generated from this map.
Separate names with a comma.
