Off-topic. Choco Taco's map is known for its cyclop look. This map looks more humanoid smile.gif What do you guys think?

Ugh,
It's the north side looking East, look at GTAKiwi's map for the location.

Ugh,
Sorry for my not-that-insane speculation.

That's what this thread is about anyway. And while the city map was predicted quite accurately, I don't trust all of the countryside mapping so far. turn.gif

I can say i don't believe blindly myself in anything, but with all the material we have, the Kiwi's map seems the most accurate so far, not only the positioning of rivers/sea/mountains, but also their scale and shape.

Really nice work GTAKiwi, thank you

Very nice work! the best complete map so far. If you want, you can use the screenshots positioning i posted on page 582 to add more in-city pictures to your awesome map wink.gif

Keep up the good work, Mapping Los Santos and countryside is really enjoyful. With another trailer and several more screenshots there will be no room for doubt it's pretty accurate tounge.gif

Holy crap some of you guys have A LOT of time on your hands..


I mean who seriously cares about the size of a video game THAT MUCH? Is it going to make any difference knowing the map's 28.7 sq miles instead of 26.3 sq miles?


What exactly is it going to change knowing the size of the map other than having it be already spoiled for you? So much hard work being put in just for something that results in overall less excitement in the game. Seems like a bad tradeoff kinda..

Just find it funny you guys have small and large los santos groups and teams for protags you haven't even played yet.. lol this forum's so silly

This is not the Los Santos Size thread. This work is being done in the spirit of curiosity, not animosity.

Sorry, and I don't trust all of it either. It's just I've seen people guess every side of the map for that shot recently tounge.gif
The common consensus is it's flying around the back of Mt. Alamo, towards the hill on the right of the lighthouse pic.

I believe that's the southeast area of LS. The golf course is to the northwest.

You know it's a successful topic when people think a fanmade map from 20 pages ago is the official map.

No.

It might actually be the infield of the racetrack.

Edit:  Grove street area is in yellow, and you can where the train line runs up the left of the road on the map.

Yeah near right. I looked at this screenshot all day 2 days ago and also on other screenshots with ghetto. If your thought is correct the road with white stripe in the middle perpendicular to the railroad we see here is railroad too.  And this second railroad possibly the same one we see in the panorama from Franklin trailer - you can see railroad crossing sign far right in the scenes with painted wall and APT for RENT building.

Possible, I wasn't sure what to make of that one, thought it might just be split into two lanes. But I'll check out the Franklin trailer, thanks. If it is a train it'll be a metro line.

Here is my though, it is hard to me to put all that area in panoramas into one cell on the map, but it looks like it really there...
ADD: Maybe railroad crossing (yellow circle) is to the southwest so green line should be extended in that direction? What do you think?

More clear view at the barred road, i had confused it with next one to the north, because i was not sure whether it dead-end or not:

I think the green one is correct for the bottom image with beer.wine

Compton courthouse would be bottom right of 'not' is and the tall appartment block would be above 'sure'.

Is there any evidence to say these two are connected roads?


I'm not even sure the top panorama has a curve on it, I thought it's just because of the panoramic view.

I think "APT for RENT" building is possibly the same building near the tree in the below panorama. I marked that tree with pink circle. You also can see inclined power lines post near it in both panoramas.

UPD: here i found suavea's illustration, not sure if it is absolutely correct, but i think it could help to put this area on the new map

Should we try to start nailing down buildings we've identified and where they are on the real map?

GTA V map

Sorry guys, haven't read the whole thread considering it's 587 pages and growing. But from what I have read, it seems no-one has presented this image.
I managed to find this doing a simple google search so I don't know if it's legit or not. But following the style of the blueprints, it seems pretty close to being
the full map of GTA V. Unfortunately it has the logo across the center and most of Blaine County is lacking detail. But with this find, it should
help a lot of you more accurately determine the scale of the full map.

Hope this helps. Made an account just so I could help out.
