|Immediately east of Tunguska, the Arctic Ocean coast has been added to the top of the map;|
The large white vertical area in the centre is the Verkhoyansk Range in Siberia, known to be one
of the coldest places on earth.
I grant, not the most interesting of maps. It does give a sense for how BIG the empty stretches of Siberia really are ... and that even at this latitude, it takes 18 maps at 20 miles a hex, and 30 hexes a map, to go around the world. I'm always struck by how truly big the whole world is, and how much of a task I took on in daring to map it to this scale. Still, it's a labour of love, so it's all good.
For awhile longer I'm going to be making this sort of map, just tagging the individual hexes for the data I have for each, as it helps with both my organization and setting something up on the fly, if needed. In awhile I'll be swinging back around to Europe and then moving one map ring south.
(Incidentally, as an aside, the bottom of these maps is about 62.5 degrees north).
