Look at the "Notes on GAZ9" section and you will see the answer.
Even though in this case this is a reproduction of an official spelling mistake, I'm still grateful to you for letting me know you found a mistake. I rely on all of you to find the little mistakes that inevitably creep in!
By the way, I always mark spelling mistakes in the notes for each map, so you can easily check whether a spelling mistake is mine or an error on official maps by looking at the notes.
great to see this map again - I'd kind of forgotten about it
Looking forward to the Gaz11 replica - and then an extension all the way to the orcs head...
I actually have a slight problem in that I only have the PDF version of GAZ11 here, so I don't have high resolution scans to work from yet. I'll have to get my brother back home to do them for me, which could take a while.
But I agree, an extended map is definitely something to look forward to.

These should be an excellent source for making new maps. The Poor Wizard's Almanacs also included some extra info in table form.

I remember someone making a trading map of the region west of the Known World too. Does anyone else remember that one?
Yeah, that was a fan-made one. Great piece of work, IIRC. It covered Slagovich, the Serpent Peninsula, and Hule. Here
Excellent! Very nice map. I will probably make a replica of that map at some point too. It should also be a great source for expanding the official trading maps.
I already said it in the "Legends" thread I created a few days ago, but it seems fitting to say this again here: one of the best things about recreating these maps - which took rather a lot of work since I had to create so much new art - is that the resources are now in place to create more trading maps much more easily. This can be done at various scales as necessary. And it's not just the trading icons that are in place; we also already have most of the coastlines and indeed trails that we will need to make new maps.
