Just calculated that round track via motorway takes 64km and with roughly 90km/h it takes 42 minutes to drive. Pretty nice!
 
With scale bottom left corner black line 2500ft / 762m.


Unlikely. Last time I tried, it took ~10.5 mins at ~160 kmh... and the map turns out to be slightly smaller than I had estimated then.

let's speed it up a littlebit av.speed 120km/h would be quite realistic then. takes ~30min.

And that scale is quite accurate if there is white and black line and end of black reads 5000ft so half of it 2500ft/762m and the line fits 84 times to that route so 64km.

Dissapointing there is only 3 Airfields/Airports.. though the fort does look immense. The map must be hiding tonnes of detail because it does look rather baron right now.

Three is about right. For each part of the map. 5 or 6 is a bit overdone.

 

A little grass strip up in the far north could have been useful.. Still looks quality though.

 

Exactly what i thought, it just needs one, small grass or paved airport near plateo bay

North Yankton could be a memory in a postcard, not a playable place. But it reminds me Liberty City in San Andreas, the snow.

Sorry but you are wrong. The black line doesn't read 5,000 feet but 3,000 feet considering the longer line reads 1,000 meters at max. If you take 5,000 feet as the number it is actually over 1,500 meters and that makes your estimate 50 % bigger than the actual number.

It's just about a third of that. The end of the black bar reads 3000 ft, and the other end is not on the image. All you can say is that 1000 ft are about 77 px.

If my old estimate (27.7 km) was accurate, the new estimate would have to be about 22.7 km. That would be around 8 min 30 sec for a round-trip at 100 mph.

How the hell did they keep grapeseed and fort zancudo under wraps, both are huge.

 

I remember a screen with someone on a motobike coming out of a tunnel with a radar tower on top, FORT ZANCUDO????? i could be way off though

GTA San Andreas wasnt that big at all, it did feel like it in past but just put 10x draw distance mod and fly around with hydra, i was doing it, and i can tell you that map isnt that big, it takes 20 seconds to get from LS to LV with a car. Now about RDR, it did seem big because it was land blocked, but playable area wasnt that big at all, just do a flying glitch and you'll see it.

If you look between the H & L where South Los Santos is written, look down & you'll see a purple house icon with a $. The street that the icon is on leads to a dead end... I think that is "Grove St."

So the mapping work is done. This topic should be renamed "Leaked map anlysis" or something like that instead of Mapping Los Santos.

Hi guys, i made a pic/comparison so it puts it more in perspective. First you see the vinewood sign until the fort, then, look at the total map and see the distance from vinewood>fort

Another thing I've just noticed that makes a lot of sense to me at least.

This must confirm that the purchasable house properties icons, are infact the business properties you can buy.

The
Spoiler
is not located on any airfield, but people reckon there is a grass runway at Grapeseed for the cropduster, it makes sense. Well there is purchasble property icon on the edge of that grass strip.

So this basically confirms the icons are not houses, but are property

any thoughts guys?

EDIT: Okay it's actually called the
Spoiler
, which might suggest my theory is off as its not really an airfield. However if that's true, where the hell is the icon for the purchase? I still think the icons are not correctly guessed by people, and they are stores to rob. Not places to buy to live in/ or use as businesses.

Granted, the map isn't bigger than Panau in Just Cause 2, but it's bigger than Liberty City which was massive in my opinion. And the guys that did the hands on from IGN said it took a real-time hour to drive around the map's edges. That's driving. At 70mph/120kph or more.

Goal was never to make map bigger than JC2, but who cares? JC2 was all felt empty and less detailed, didnt have many things to do. GTA V will be at least bigger than GTA SA, GTA 4 and RDR, and thats whats important.

Well guys, everything comes to an end and for me that time is right now. It was a lot of fun and we discovered some very nice things, but with this 'real map' being shown it's time for me to stop reading this thread.
But really, thanks for all the good posts and the fun reading them! Special thanks to fido, wayne and zombie..... Ok then, and even to kindled for his stupid reactions, they were really fun to read! Have some good fun playing the game!!

Not Grove Street. That's Marina Del Ray and that would be hotels that you're pointing out.

Looking at Fido's map and the real map side by side. Fido's map is incredibly accurate.
