Default The One Minute Walk survey

April 27th, 2011, 16:52
Here are some preliminary results from my "One Minute Walk" survey of open world mmos. The idea is simple: trace a 60 second walk from north-south and west-east, then scale and combine the maps to the largest 1 minute coordinate system.

Here is my current result from World of Warcraft, with the expansion maps scaled to the Kalimdor/Eastern-Kingdoms maps. Notice how puny looking that Outland expansion looks.

If anyone would like to contribute I'd be happy to merge other maps with these.

Notice: these aren't exact measurements but they should be fairly accurate. I also assume there is a 1:1 mapping of player position across the whole map that is surveyed.

Updates:
  • Added map for Tatooine from SWTOR
  • Added map for Taris from SWTOR.
  • Added map for Telara from Rift.
