Westeros Gets the Google Maps Treatment With a Game of Thrones Map
"OK Google. Take me somewhere safe." "Rerouting... rerouting... rerouting..."
This is far from the first fan-map of the world of George R.R. Martin’s Games of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire, but it’s probably the most easily recognizable due to its Google Maps style. It’s a shame it’s not interactive, so we don’t get to see the little red traffic dots show up to denote where you might want to find an alternate route to avoid all the murder.
On the other hand, you can actually own this map, which has, “lots of details with almost every little town, castle and stronghold marked as well as mountains, forests and roads.” For the relatively low price of $21, it comes as a “Museum-quality poster made on thick, durable, matte 192 g/m2 paper. A statement in any room” from MogoLife on Etsy.
Here’s a look at the full map:
But of course, despite the close attention to detail and Google facade, die-hard fans of the books/show/maps are sure to noticed some inconsistencies and omissions. Commence arguing over its accuracy and cartographic merit, nerds!
