Fun stuff, I like it. We could use something like that for a challenge...find a smudge and turn it into a map.

If you look back far enough, you'll see a map of one of our members (Highlander) has found its way there.

EDIT: Here it is! (http://strangemaps.wordpress.com/2008/02/25/248-friends-polypotamians-countrymen/)

This post might be of interest here:


It's about the "Atlas of True Names" which presents a map of the world with entomological place names. For example London is replaced with "Hillfort", Dublin with "Black Pool" and Manchester with "Bear Guard Home". Makes me a little less embarrassed by my unimaginative place names.
