Resource: The Uncharted Atlas

Protectorate of sik Kuslun by Uncharted AtlasIf 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!
