Over the last year I've been mapping the world of Midgard for Kobold Press (the games company formerly known as Open Design). The map of the world of Midgard has just been released as an iPad app - which is really cool. I admit that I'm entirely biased, but the map allows you to zoom close in to see all the detail - at least 3x higher resolution than you'll ever get in a print product - and allows you to toggle the text. It include some very nifty animated clouds and clickable cities that take you to the city map. This is the v1 release, and I know that Kobold Press have many more cool features in the works for upcoming updates - and are listening for suggestions of things they should include.

Here's some screenshots:

The app can be picked up on the app store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/midgard-atlas/id557124240?ls=1&mt=8). The people that worked on the app are myself (world map, compass), Sean MacDonald and Lucas Haley (city maps), and Luis Mejia (app coding and design). I'm really looking forward to seeing what opportunities this kind of digital product might open up.

I would realy love to be assigned for such a task. It must feel awesome to have such a project finished and in your hands to view back the time spend on it.

It really is. It's amazing to see all that hard work finished and in one place. Quite astonishing.

Well 'back' is about right. Things are pretty busy all round so we'll see how that goes, but yes with the GoT due for release on Oct 30th it's going to be an interesting couple of months.

Are there plans for an Android version of Midgard?

I would love to buy this!

There's some loose talk about Android but nothing firm as far as I know.
