In July 2011 when I announced the Beta-1 Cahill-Keyes Multi-Scale Megamap here, http://www.cartotalk...?showtopic=7360  among the shortcomings I mentioned were its lack of up-to-date borders, its lack of big lakes and inland seas, and its inherent splitting of Antarctica, Iceland, Russian Far East, etc. These have all been remedied in the Beta-2: Duncan Webb has taken care of the borders and lakes; and Mary Jo Gra├ža augmented her Perl and OpenOffice.org Draw programs such that the map can now be plotted with contiguous extensions for the aforementioned land masses, plus some other islands. I have just posted a set of ten close-up screen grabs of these, plus four full-size pdf's of the Beta-2 at the respective scales of 1/1 million, 1/10 million, 1/50 million, and 1/100 million. (Jpeg, not pdf, of smallest attached below.)BETA-2-400x210-pdf-to.jpg

 

The 1/1 million pdf, 45 MB, 40 m x 21 m (131' x 69') can be downloaded and viewed in a Chrome browser with lots and lots of scrolling. More details at http://www.genekeyes...-2-preview.html
