You know, I'm REALLY starting to doubt Ovi's skills. I seriously doubt I could find many people who don't make geography their profession that could best UFO King. This all sounds like a fat lot of hype to me. Why don't any of you actually prove that Oviraptor is this supposed god of geography? I bet that at best he's as good as King, unless he's secretly a cartography ninja with twenty PhDs. ::) I have been presented no evidence to suggest anything otherwise, so this is the logical natural assumption for me to make.

Dushanbe, Brasilia, Dodoma. I never was too much into toponymy, but I would think Brasilia should be fairly obvious. <.< >.>

Most people think it's Rio de Janeiro, possibly Dar es Salaam("House of Peace") if they didn't do enough research.

Dushanbe means "Monday" in Tajik, because the town once had a bustling marketplace on Mondays. Dodoma and Brasilia were made the new capitals of their respective nations to centralize government(literally) and encourage inland settlement in Brazil's case.

I tend to be a little skeptical when all the information that I'm provided with are rehashed memes that I can't even work with.

I'm more concerned about what shape you think India is. 

Also you think Madagascar is Zanzibar?

Hehe.

France is north of Italy, Ireland is east of the UK, Sicily is east of Italy, New Zealand is north of Australia...

Also Scotland is not an Ireland and you somehow ended up with Poland being directly south of the UK, and France next to the Czech republic.

Also the Phillipines are much bigger than hawaii in real life.

I think the map is beautiful. It looks like Europe won the second world war. (http://Shutup, I know Europe is not a country... smartypants.)

Apparently Maryland is now north of New York... and since Pennsylvania is north of Maryland and south of New York, I think because I am.

Jeese man if you're just going to post stuff you found browsing imgur at least give some explanation.

Someone apparently asked 30 people to draw the world from memory and then combined the images.

The sort of 'remastered' version is a bit weird since it was probably chopped together in photoshop and they left in details from the satellite images that clearly wouldn't have been present in the original drawings.

I thought it was kinda obvious, with the different layers overlapping and stuff.

The terrain is artistic license.
