I have to mention that I skipped some of the tourist attractions, and 1 ANL in the south coast. That has a duplicate name, and I hope that it get fixed in a future update. I will add it then of coarse.
If you find mistakes, please tell, you will not hurt my feelings, only my pride…
I loved doing it. And will keep updating the map.
You might notice that I also made some changes to the map where certain Icons where not, or not on the right spot on the ingame map. I corrected all those I knew.
Asöstugan outpost base moved to right spot.
Tourist attraction Farstaborg moved to right spot.
Changed the camping icon at Himsundsbryggan to a Ferry/port icon (Ferry crossing is here)
Hällaberga Festival moved to right spot.
Övertärnafyren Lighthouse icon added.
Stormyra bunker had Industrial icon changed with bunker Icon.
Two Angerås Churches one needs to be Sillavik Church.
Two unnumbered Beredskapsförråd also without bunker Icon.
Anl 144 Vidsele south coast has duplicate name. Added a 2.
Anl 182 Hässlehed, Hermelinen bunker and Asöstugan outpost had no airport icon,
but these locations have 1 or more planes ready to take off, and have a runway.
Knarrebo Homestead has a FNIX neural node Icon, but there is no FNIX presence
I wanted to have it on my wall, and like you said to write stuff on it with a sharpy. Not sure how big it needs to be in printed form in order to be able to read the labelling. But if the lockdown opens up a bit more, I will see if I can get it printed. If so I will show the result here.
About the interactive map I have no idea. I’m sure it can be done by someone who has the skills. I loaded the image into https://yangcha.github.io/iview/iview.html to see how it looked. But that page shows the maximum image size and doesn’t include a zoom function. Also not sure if the source code is available.
How about correcting the water line, rather than using the current, flawed map? For example, the lake at Forest and North Coast borer doesn’t end half-way, as seen on map. Instead it goes up to Dammtrop.
“Tank graveyard” (Farmlands, -1819, 1225) has actual name in game lore: Battle of Överbyslätten.

A big IF indeed. For now I’m focussing on a visual Map. I share these maps, but I make them really for my own need and the pleasure it brings me of getting a complete picture, figuratively and literally. I am learnings new things like using a graphics editor, and although I am not very good at it, it serves my purpose. The map doesn’t give you the exact coordinates, but more a rough direction of where things are to be found.
I wanted to print this but the 1:1 scale of the map relates to a picture of 242 cm x 167 cm. So printing will be out of the question, if printing on A0 or even 2A0 paper is unreadable.
Well yes, I could puzzle the pieces together. But the total map mustn’t be too big, because where would I put it. I am also thinking of a foldable map as one possibility. But I’d rather have one hanging on the wall like a collectable. Call me crazy.
The digital map is easier for quick reference. I load the map in my graphics program, because I haven’t found a simple and free picture viewer that zooms close to the 1:1 scale. Google drive works, but zooms not nearly to 1:1 scale, Microsoft Photo’s is better that way, but doesn’t allow vertical and horizontal movement with the mouse. Go figure.
I have time. The print shops aren’t open here yet, so I have to wait anyway to see what is possible. But I also like the new island to be included. So there’d that too.
Ok, that works great. I had to install the plugins too. I especially liked that with left mouse button held you select a part of the map and then click that part to zoom out on that selection. Very quick.
