Ideally, yes, but enclaves and exclaves don't play by those rules.

No, it's pretty common. People often try to use colors most associated with nations they are meant for. But since a lot of nation are associated with the same (or very similar) colors, it's usually the "important" ones that get the colors. I mean, how many times have you seen the USSR represented as red?

Well, I wouldn't say I'm surprised.

I really only go there for the maps. And they have some of the most detailed maps of Earth.

Really, it's best to use a combo of Google Earth and Wikipedia instead of a legend. Too many things going on when you make a map of the whole world.

Actually, that's where I got it. But it's the first time I've seen it with the EEZs included.

These are also from the same place, but no nifty EEZs: http://imgur.com/a/nh2Wn

Edit: The above series of map is one they call "Q-BAM." And I happened upon a thread where they are trying to make a version at 9x the resolution: https://www.alternatehistory.com/forum/threads/the-m-bam-main-thread.376181/

I spent a week in August in an unairconditioned house in Florida; it's like trying to sleep in a sauna with your clothes on.

Is there a key for the map somewhere? I want to know why there are different shades within some countries.

There is, but you're not going to like it...

I know this isn't about that site, but this seem like a good as place as any to have a general map topic. Because this map is amazing:



Probably going to want to open it up in a new tab, it's pretty large.

Dry heat is weird. You can be boiling hot in the sun and the you walk into a building's shadow and suddenly all the heat is gone, even if it's 100 degrees out.

Yeah but the Chinese have ramps now, so they'll be able to get extra points in the "performance" section of the contest!! Puny Amerifats only have catapults.

Well, having ramps on aircraft carriers is hardly new, in fact it's pretty common on light aircraft carriers: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light_aircraft_carrier

I just hope that the ringed stations actually work like real ones would. Walking around inside one would be really cool.
