    I made the map by superimposing the official paper maps arbitrarily on the earth's surface and tracing the geography using QGIS, a free and open-source mapping program. I uploaded and styled that data in Mapbox, a web-mapping company with a generous free tier. If you're curious about making your own, I've got some tutorials on my Twitch channel. Or if you wanna see more about other maps I make you can follow me on Instagram (@redgiantmaps). The maps are free and hopefully always will be, but if you're super appreciative of them, you can always support me via the Ko-Fi links in the maps or on Patreon.

  • [No Spoilers] It's been one year since I released the Tal'Dorei interactive map! It's free to use! Link in comments.
    P.S. - The most common question I get is how it's made! I linked to a tutorial above, but essentially I use Geographic Information System (GIS) software—specifically a free and open-source program called QGIS—to place the maps from the books arbitrarily on the earth's surface. This allows me to create a web map with the data using Mapbox because it thinks it's somewhere on earth. Both of these software programs are free to use and have loads of documentation and tutorials online. To do this process takes a mix of GIS skills (knowing how to use the software, conducting geospatial operations, projections) as well as web development skills (HTML, CSS, JavaScript). If you're curious about it, check out my Twitch and feel free to reach out with any questions. If more people know how to do cool mapping stuff, the world would be a better place.
  • Hold off on installing QGIS 3.18 on windows

    not sure if barnezhilton is serious or joking but the only security relevant issue I could find on github was this one server access control completely ignored. https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/issues/41800
  • How to install PDAL package to import las/laz in 3.18?
    reddit.com/r/QGIS | 2021-02-27
    Hi, QGIS 3.18 now supports point clouds in las/laz format. However, after a fresh installation of 3.18 I still can't import las/laz. I'm encountering the same problem as a user reported here on Github. According to this reply the problem can be solved by installing the PDAL provider. How do I do that? I'm not very familiar with OSGeo4W but I managed to install the PDAL lib 1.8.0-1. It doesn't help, though. The package is still not showing up in QGIS. Any hints what I have to do?
