If you read fantasy, or would like to write fantasy, you might be interested in The Uncarted Atlas. If you follow the twitter for the site (@unchartedatlas), you will be treated to a succession of computer generated fantasy world maps like the one left.
They’re so good I’m tempted to write a story to fit! On a more serious note the website is a technical but interested read explaining how coder Martin o’Leary developed his algorithmn, and you can even make your own map on the page.
If you are a fantasy author, how do you make your maps? What do you think of Martin’s work? Let me know!
