The XK-BAM map series

My work on Russia kind of stalled in Siberia because so many borders are defined by rivers and we don't have many rivers drawn on asian part of the map so im now basically working on drawing those missing rivers.
 
If nobody else is working on rivers,i can try to finish them up from those overlays, postponing my work on Russia for a while

This file has river overlays set up for most of the world.
Working on weekend i managed to do about half of mainland Asia (yes siberia is huge), im using your overlays as a base and when adding new rivers checking them from 3-4 sources so i takes some time, i hope to finish rest of the world in 2-3 weeks time, check them with regional maps to see if they need some fine tuning. After that im planning to send them to you, if you want to add something or correct something you see.

You're working on rivers? Can you do some work on the Q-bam rivers map? In which case please stop by here.

Is there a sorta "prerelease" for the stuff you've been doing in russia and asia (especially in european russia)? I would really appreciate that since I need especially Eastern Europe
 
East Asia-Pacific.png

Hi, I made this 2K-BAM map of East Asia and the Pacific in December 6, 1941 for another project of mine. I might later expand this into a full world map, but for now I would like to hear some constructive criticism and if I have made any mistakes. Please note that several borders were drawn manually without any reference maps, so they may be slightly inaccurate.

P.S. Does anyone have good sources on the administrative divisions of the Dutch East Indies? I couldn't find any so I used the subdivisions from other maps like the WorldA.

I have done some work on Central Europe in 1855 and France in 1788 maps. I kept the original borders for easier orientation and the historical ones are in blue. The red/orange borders/spots are spots that haven't done or checked. The light blue one in Bukovina is a river. I came across an issue with tiny states and borders. For example the panhandle in Bavaria, the resolution doesn't allow me to draw it accurately in the right spot, so it's left unfinished. And as I've stumbled over more of these places I gave up on finishing the maps. But I wanted to share them with you, in case someone would want to use them for their own work.

The 1855 one is mostly done, the only major unfinished things are Prussia's eastern and internal borders, Principality of Transylvania and Austrian military frontier + few unchecked spots. I have tweaked some borders here and there, from the top of my head the borders of Krakow, Galicia-Lodomeria, Bohemia-Moravia, southern borders of Austria and some borders in Germany. There were also minor mistakes in coastlines of Montenegro and Po river delta when I was checking borders with satellite google maps, so that's fixed too.

The map of France in 1788 is 40-50% done. Each province has its own color except the ones completely in the grey zones. The historical borders should go loosely through the light grey areas. The borders are based on maps made by user Poulpy and uploaded on wikimedia commons and wikipedia.

Someone should remake the borderpool but on this projection.
 
Made the same patch but for the 8K Bam. Yeah I know basically nobody will use it but hopefully I can start a trend of doing historical administrative patches.

A couple days ago tungsterismapping posted on the main map thread a series of relief maps in the 2K-BAM scale. I translated and sort of de-bugged them to fit into the 2K-BAM, and here's the result (might still contain pixels that are off).

EDIT: Fixed most bugged pixels.

I really admire all the work you've done here with the bathymetry. I know it's a thread about the XK-Bam or 2K-Bam maps, but i really hope one day i can find a map just like that with the Q-Bam form
