    Post February/March Lite Challenge Entry: Gnoland

    Yea. So this is my first map. I'm going to forgo the story for now. The StreetMap is of Nuuk, the capital of Greenland. I am probably going to inhabit it with gnomes and name the map Gnoland.

    From StreetMap:

    sounds like a fun idea - I'm sure my wife will enjoy seing what you do since she lived in Nuuk for 3 years before I lured her back to Denmark

    Unfortunately I probably will not get to this. I am far too interested in my current mapping experiments in Gimp.
    Some useful cartography facts:
    Circumference (C) of the Earth is about 25,000 miles or 40,000 km.
    Highest point on Earth is 5.5 miles (8.9 km) above sea level (ASL/BSL).
    Lowest point of land on Earth is 1/4 mile (0.4 km) BSL.
    Lowest elevation in the ocean is 6.8 miles (10.9 km) BSL.

    And our solar system:
    C of Jupiter = 279,118 miles (449,197 km).
    Highest mountain is Olympus Mons on Mars. It is 16 miles high (24 km) and is the size of Arizona.
