Make your own Map with the Map Generator

This mapgenerator allows you to generate a map from our Database containing large amounts of Geographic data regarding Climate and Hydrology. The maps are generated using the current content of the database but are of high quality. Such functionality is rare on the internet were quick and small resolution maps are the standard. Enjoy the maps and color your walls and corridors. The maps are projected in Lambert Equal Area and go from the North Cape to the Canary Islands and from the Azores to the Ural.
The options you can choose are the following:

Output Format:    JPEG    PNG    TIFF
