Prior to today, I was using other sources for my blank maps of the world. That causes problems, because each source may not use the same scale or map projection, so the maps can’t be compared against one another.

So instead of relying on other maps, I’ve used a popular map service and Photoshop to create my own maps! (The exceptions are Antarctica – because this map service only projects in 2D – and Oceania – because the tiny islands are too small to register on a zoomed-out map.) Feel free to download any of these maps for your personal use by right-clicking on the image and clicking “Save As.”

Eventually I will add labeled versions of each of these maps, as I learn world geography in tandem with my syllabus. Happy learning!
