I enjoyed that. Good one.

When you've sorted out the lines of latitude and longitude, could you do something about the creases in the map, please? I twisted my ankle on one once.





N.B. and O.T. - Here's a neat way to fold a map. Miura map fold. (http://www.merrimack.edu/~thull/combgeom05/handout7.pdf) (pdf)

It works! Although I ended up having to contort the sheet of paper so much that I might as well have just crumpled it into a tiny ball. I don't think Miura intended it to be used on sheets of A4.

A4 works fine. I found it helped to fold each crease back on itself as I went along, so that valleys could turn easily into mountains and vice versa.
