The state and county boundaries of the State of New Mexico, as ordained by the state constitution drafted in May 1850, and approved by the population in a vote that took place on June 20th, 1850.

(The second map is purely for visualizing where the state was geographically. The map used is made specifically for 1-1-1850, and any changes to state, county, native reservation, or native land cession boundaries between 1-1-1850 and 6-20-1850 are not accounted for.)
 
@XO Maenadicus made a wonderful topographic equirectangular map of Mars here in the Alternate Planets, Suns, Stars, and Solar Systems Thread, and I think it could be easily converted into a 2k-bam scale map. I would like to see more topographic maps of solar system bodies in general.
 
Thought a map of intermediate size between 2K-BAM and 8K-BAM could be useful, so here's 4K-BAM. I made this by reducing the scale of the 8K-BAM and tracing over it, so some borders or coastlines might not be as accurate as they were supposed to be, but those cases are minor. Edit: Fixed some bugs, please report any weird pixels or missing borders.

Oooh, really nice
I have thought of doing a 4k-bam too, what a concidence 👍
 
@Tethys00's 5K-BAM could also be mentioned here. I think a 4k-bam would be more useful, seeing as it's more easily compatible with 2K and 8K, but the 5K-BAM already has a bunch of resources which could be used for 4k as well.

Nice!
Anyway, I have an idea for a new map size: The 8PDE. It would be 2880x1440, as it's a nice round number, and one degree corresponds to an integer number (in this case 8) of degrees longitude or latitude.

That seems like an interesting idea. It's exactly 1/15 of VT-BAM size (which, IIRC, has 30 arcseconds to a pixel). Out of curiosity, is there any reason why you chose 7.5' per pixel?

Because it's a bit bigger than the WK-Bam, whilst still being able to fit onto the forum. 6 pixels/° (2160×1080) is a little too small, while 10 pixels/º (3600×1800) is a little too big.

Mexico has a boo-boo - there's a very tiny gap in the Tamalupias - SLP border.
