Not a castle, but barn and silo.  :colgate:

I think there are many many places we haven't seen yet.  The map is so huge, and most screenshots have been in just a few locations.  I think they've been careful to show a lot without showing a lot, if ya know what I mean.

Below the plane to the right there appears to be a trailer in the river. This probably doesn't help with mapping but I'm assuming it's the same location where Trevor was threatening that guy in Trailer 2?

Good eye!

That's most likely the same place :)

 

Huzzah! I finally contributed to the mapping thread, one week before release! That was a close one!

Where's this?
 
Somewhere near the vineyard

I believe that's looking West going down the Zancudo river to the ocean.

Okay, I'll mark it up for you ;)

Edit: And here's the trailer from trailer #2. Surprising to have a river that appears to be permanently blocked.

Hmmm,maybe it is the Zancudo River looking west.

But we don't see that "castle" /silo thingy on other screens (mainly, the parachuting one from the website opening).

Related to the train/rail discussion earlier today, it looks like we finally have a confirmed location of the '...k railyard' sign from trailer 2:

I'm also wondering if the 'welcome' sign on the 4th street bridge (from the online trailer) is somehow related to the railyard, since it is very similar in design and located nearby. I have searched for real life versions of both signs without finding any.

Hey guys, I'm kinda new here but I just wanted to stop by and say this thread is amazing. Great job from everyone, I honestly had no idea there were this many dedicated people in the community, and I'm amazed with your deductions. Seems like you guys got nearly the entire map figured out before release  :pp

Well, that kinda flunks the theory that said sign belonged to San Diego or something...

Just push the 'image' button on the editor and insert the url.
You can switch between bbcode and wysiwyg editor by pushing the button in the top left corner of the editor window.

We have already seen all places, don't be naive or you'll be dissapointed

But Los Santos is behind the mountain's on the right, above the left propeller of the helicopter you can see the antenna which stands behind the vinewood sign
(Wow, bit hard to translate those words, hope it's clear)

Wind farm.

I think you're wrong. For example, we haven't seen the huge factory east of the wind farm yet... ;)

It's much different seeing a location from way up high versus actually being there on the ground.  That's what I mean.  We've probably seen the valley in this new screenshot from way up high, but actually being near ground level is something else entirely.

Look at the top of the mountain on the right side. Is it snow? Maybe just my imagination lol.

Where the hell are these screens coming from? It's assuring seeing new screens you never knew existed. For a second, I thought I was obsessed.

 

There are more here. The one below is interesting, too.

I'm a bit confused by this one. Which direction are we facing:

Uh wow, good eyes!

 

Now can you find the building I marked up? Seems pretty distinct. I've spent quite some time looking for it around the LA River, but to no avail.

That clears it up a little. You've got an idea on the building to the left of Michael's head?
