Calculated the (2D) size of the landmass area:

 

 

 

Based on your 1km=255pixels ratio I overlapped the GTA SA map for better comparison.

Is this a skydiving airstrip in grapeseed..

 

grapestrip.jpg

 

Note to the north east what seems to be some kind of prachuting/paragliding/skydiving icon? Or not.. just a guess.

 

Skydiving landing spot or something, there's one on the edge of Paleto bay too.

 

 

:^: And when the houses with the $ are businesslocations, then this is maybe the small hangar for the achivement.

Yes!!!  Movie studio 99.9% confirmed.

Judging the architecture, "Backlot City" is based on Paramount Pictures Studio.

North Yankton is probably a region or small area on one of those mountains.

I think I see 6 different places to play tennis O_o

 

Yeah, the tennis courts to strip clubs ratio seems a bit off... ;)

 

However, it's nice to see that there are three movie theaters.

We see the Light rail and freight train line now, but the other rail line isn't mapped on here.  :monocle:

Cant quite make it out (much like a lot of the map unfortunately) but north of what seems to be the NOOSE site on the East of the map..is that a MILITARY something Research site?

Granted the fort is likely the main if not only military site....but am i the only one who potentially sees 'military' and 'research' over there?

Either that or...

... that. Like a small part of LC (Marco's bistro) in GTA San Andreas. Mission only.

 

 

 

There isn't a chance that there could be a second smaller island outside of LS and Blaine County, right?

I don't see Vice City, surround by a time vortex that sends you back to the 1980's.

FWIW, the subway network isn't the only thing that's misprinted on the blueprint map. That strange double line in Santa Monica also makes perfect sense if you move it southeast... it's the tunnel. Guess we might find more of those.

Edit: Here's another one... the train tunnel.

The purple icons with the dollar sign are definitely either businesses you can purchase/invest in and safehouses and stores you can hold up (liquor stores, convenience stores) are on other maps in the strategy guide.

 

Or this is the activities map that includes tennis, golf, movies, strip clubs, parachuting, races etc and the purple icons are businesses you can hold up (most likely considering the leaked achievement for doing so) and the safehouses will still be on another map
