The style of this map reminds me of Middle-earth.

That piece about the mountains of Middle Earth doesn't hold up when you look beyond the Americas. Check out Siberia, Iran. the vast region north of India, not to mention the Balkans. As a Tolkien fan from long ago and far away, I don't have a problem with his map...or Titan's mountains. Or especially this new map.

What an outstanding work of visualization! Great outreach tool, too. Very, very impressive, Nick. smile.gif

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.
