Roshar From Space v2

4 posts in this topic

Thanks to the graticule in the Oathbringer map of Roshar and Peter's hint that the Rosharan system uses 100 degrees of latitude and 200 degrees of longitude, I was able to update my orthographic map of the planet! (You can see the old thread here.)

This version is much more accurate, though not completely perfect—for some reason I wasn't able to exactly replicate the graticule used in the map. You'll notice that the continent is a fair bit smaller than my original assessment. I also updated it to include land cover, better symbology, and some cities that didn't appear on previous maps. I assumed in labeling the latitude and longitude lines that the Prime Meridian that the Rosharans use is the one that goes through Kadrix and that they number their lines out from zero in all four directions.

 

EDIT: I've been informed by Peter on Twitter that the equator is too high; it should go through Kadrix. Like I said, it's not entirely perfect yet.

Awesome thanks for updating this! It is very useful to see this representation. Can I use your map for a post I want to update?

Nice job! Though you've made me just realized that I've imagined the sun on the wrong side of the sky all along... 

Any hints on the axial tilt of Roshar? I wonder if they have white nights there.
