Middle-earth as you've never seen it before. The First Age is a zoomable satellite view of Middle-earth built from over 400 USGS Landsat images of Earth, repurposed and combined into one exquisite rendering of Middle-earth as it would have looked in the First Age.

From Beleriand in the West to the Bay of Cuiviénen in the East the map accurately combines drawn maps of Middle-earth in the First and Third Ages by using common elements such as the Hill of Himring and the highlands of Taur-nu-Fuin.

Features include:

* Amazing detail based on 5 different levels of zoom.

* An information view with details of the main locations in the history of The First Age.

* A distance calculator. Simply select two points and the distance between them is calculated.

* Middle Earth in the real world. See where locations in Middle Earth would be if they were in the real world (based on JRR Tolkien's own assumptions).

The map is neat but needs work.

I like your idea but if it had more detail to it it would be great. By details I just mean more name on the map.

Thoroughly Enjoyable

Very worth the small purchase price. I really love just being able to peruse through the locations from The Silmarillion. Much easier to reference than the book maps. A few small issues have been addressed by other reviewers, so I won’t touch on those. I hope the creators make a version of this for the Third Age!

Mostly great

Quite cool, would be better if not for a few issues.

-Lorien should extend further east, all the way to the Anduin.
-Greenwood/Mirkwood probably shouldn’t show the East Bight, it developed over time due to lumbering.
-It’s not entirely clear that Mordor was fully formed during the First Age. Some of its geography may have formed as a result of the War of Wrath.
-The Brown Lands did not yet exist as such.
