I know this is a long shot, but I was wondering if anybody could point me to some Pangea (the supercontinent at the end of the Permian) data. Looking for coastlines but also some information as to where mountain ranges and deep sea trenches might be. Or just any high-res sample map.

This guy has lot of data about plate tectonic development. It may be worth contacting him.

I send him an email about 2 years ago about that without any response... Let us know if you are more successful!

I did find that guy too and have sent him an email earlier today. Look like he's got some interesting data, though I doubt it'll be hi-res enough for what I need to produce.

Hi Hans,

There is an SVG here, if it's of the slightest use.

http://commons.wikim..._continents.svg

It doesn't look to have much provenance.

Out of curiosity: have you found a source for this data?

Not at the resolution I needed, the client had specified an A2 sized print showing mountain ranges and all. But to be fair, I haven't looked much further because the client has rejected my price quote. Not unsurprisingly because this was going to be a one-off non-commercial print (as in: one print for personal use and that's it) so even a very much reduced price is going to be an awful lot of money for that. It's really a shame because I would have loved to work on this, despite the fact that most of the actual terrain would be based on an educated guess at best.
