We are a small mapping startup company called Mapcherry (http://mapcherry.io/) from Romania and we create vector map tiles from OpenStreetMap data. We are constantly improving OSM (editing using JOSM different map features) and published some tools we develop to the open-source community. That being said, we would like to use the shapefiles from the Middle Earth github to create some vector tiles for a potential client that wants to use to the tiles for a walk tracking app - they want to reproduce Frodo's path from The Shire to Mordor. The client also wants to have some detailed areas in the cities, we will use the maps from atlas of middle earth as information. If we can use the shapefiles with Middle Earth from the github, I'll want to add the cities (roads, houses, cartographic features) we create to the ME-GIS open project (I'll make sure that the client agrees to this). Please let me know what do you think about this.

Also, great job in recreating Middle Earth in a GIS friendly environment.

Well boys, it has happened. We have a business asking if they can purchase a commercial license to the ME-DEM data. They make 3D wooden maps, and they have gotten a lot of requests for Middle Earth.

We are a small business building 3d wooden maps. On TikTok, one of our most requested maps was Middle Earth!
If interested, please check it out - https://www.tiktok.com/@lindentreedesigns/video/6987482968273063174

We would love to bring such a beauty to life and was wondering how to contact to purchase a commercial license.

Thanks and amazing work to the contributors!
Would love to send you all a wooden map of your amazing work


What do you guys say?

Hi there,

Would it be okay to download your ME-GIS content? A few years back I georeferenced the MEarth map using QGIS, and had a crack at vectorising some of the content, but haven’t worked on it much since, would love to spend some more time seeing what I can come up with (when time allows)


Cheers Melissa

Hello all,

I am teaching myself iOS development and am wanting to build an app that could be an easy reference map for people reading through The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings for the first time. It would be somewhat similar to http://lotrproject.com/, but I am wanting to make it feel native to mobile. I was also wanting a map that could be made into XYZ tiles, to allow for much for detail at higher zoom levels. I came across the ME-GIS project on Github and was immediately impressed by the work that you have done and I would love to build off of this.

I'm doing a project for my GIS class and would like permission to use your data (https://github.com/jvangeld/ME-GIS). The project is not fully defined yet, but would likely involve either a route analysis of some kind (perhaps the route the hobbits took from The Shire to Rivendell), or a suitability analysis. Still working out the details with my teacher.

Thank you,
