Cartography

History:

In 2009 Tomas de Courcy started a project to map out all of the branches in the Principality of Tir Righ in Google Earth. He finished that portion and updated a similar version that Kean de Lacy made of An Tir Central. Then he went through and did the Principalities of the Summits and Avacal.

Well branch borders change, new branches are created, old branches go away. So in 2011 Tomas went through and updated some major changes that happened in Tir Righ (several branch merges). While doing that the project expanded into a map of all of the kingdoms.

In 2016 Tomas updated the map again, this time adapting it so it would work well on Google Maps as not as many people were using Google Earth any more. Some work that was being done by various kingdoms was brought in as well.

It now includes the borders of all of the kingdoms of the Known World, as well as all of the branches in An Tir, Avacal, Northshield, Ealdormere and the Canadian branches in the Kingdom of the East as well as the major wars in the SCA.

Unfortunately the project has now reached the technical limitations of Google Maps, so this is as many kingdoms as will have branches added to it.  If you would like to split off a version of the map and add your kingdom’s branches to it please feel free, as long as you link back here and continue with the Creative Commons license (see bottom of page).
