One thing I'm confused about: Chumash and North Chumash, I mean they're so far apart, in fact they're in different counties!

 

I guess if the entire west coast is like the region of Chumash or something idk

It's so hard not to study the map. I originally told myself I would only glance at it, but now that it's here I can't control myself...

I feel so guilty :cry:  

 

This sums up how I feel

Can somebody recreate the leaked map as Blueprint ?
Aaand, I think this map is good, but it still needs a little Island, Just like in Far Cry 3 !

I know how you feel. I can't stop looking at it, trying to spot where different locations are and how to navigate from one spot to another.

I spotted some jumbojet wrecks, its probably placed somewere around the airport at sandy shores?

You can see the scrap yard just under that aerial view of the plane you added to the map.
The cars in the screenshot would be almost directly under the plane, and the camera looking South West.

Palmer-Taylor Power Station. Obviously a reference to Robert Palmer & Andy (or John) Taylor of the 80's supergroup "The Power Station"

I don't know if it's been said, but Zancudo Air Base has a longer runway than LSX.  Just an observation.

For all the people asking about Grove St.

Even though it was located weeks ago & answered several times already.

Is it correct that this location should be visible in the background of this shot?

Not in the background.
You can see it in the foreground. To the right of the train.

Edit. Or just above the train engine.
Bit hard to see cos I'm on my phone ATM.

Alright mappers, like mentioned multiple times, and like I also said yesterday before seeing the map, brilliant job guys. You pretty much nailed it before being leaked.
 
By the way, there's been a discussion in this thread about a possible 4th runway that isn't marked like the airbases we've seen in the map - A small dirt one in Grapeseed, with a property icon near it. Seems likely to me and to other users that this possibly serves as an airstrip for some light airplanes, particularly the Cropduster, which would make sense in a rural area. Is there anything that confirms this, like a screenshot or a trailer scene or something? Or is it just a random straight and, in comparison to the surrounding roads, thick dirt path in the middle of the countryside?
 
A picture pointing it out:

Well mate there is an acheivement that relates to this runway, in that you have to buy the
Spoiler
. This means that since the purchasable property icon isn't anywhere near any of the 3 other airfields then this must be it.

This would also mean that people worrying about no house/s to buy in Malibu, shouldn't have to worry as that would point to the icons be businesses.

Just wondering, why isn't

Spoiler
on the map?

Think a lot of people are forgetting these maps are like the ones in GTA IV strategy guide, they don't list every detail because it would simply be too much detail.

They list major roads, facilities, etc. compared it to the GTA IV maps it makes sense.

USLA is in, confirmed ages ago.

EDIT

Oops sorry guys, just noticed the double post, was quoting someone else there, was almost a triple post potentially. So I've added this into this post.

Palmer-Taylor Power Station. Obviously a reference to Robert Palmer & Andy (or John) Taylor of the 80's supergroup "The Power Station"


Or David Palmer and Allison Taylor from 24.

Two US presidents in the series, Palmer in Series 1 has an assassination attempt in a power station.

Also 24 is set in Los Angeles mainly, (Bauer lives there).

The Power Station are from NYC

Here's one more potentially interesting detail. It's hard to make out what it could be, but I don't think it's just nothing.

Are you talking about the grey shape going into the Reservoir? I'm not sure what it is to be honest,or the area next to Route 13 sign?

Either way I'm not sure
