We created special affects to design an old world appearance in the map. The detailed outlines and political boundaries are carefully prepared using modern GIS mapping software. The result is an accurate map with the look of a classical antique map.

Geographic Data: The map is created using a combination of satellites and developed entirely using numbers, measurements, and GIS software. Our custom terrain modeling is derived from SRTM Space Shuttle topographic data and it allows you to clearly see the topography of our planet. In addition, we also use NOAA oceanic data to display oceanic basins, currents, and plate tectonics.
