Level 32 : Artisan Princess

A small (~600x600) island with an grand chain of mountains created using real world topography. There are beaver-dams, lakes with logjams, gigantic pine trees, hanging glaciers, waterfalls, short narrow slot canyons and more... Details make an epic map, not cone-shaped fantasy peaks...

The game is survival ready, just /gamemode 0. I've placed signs with the actual names of several prominent landmarks. Kudos to anyone who can provide me with approximate lat/longs for the actual location on which the mountains are modeled.

If you like the map, but have suggestions for improvement, I'd like to hear it...

Here's the tutorial that got me started:

The problem is that its 90m elevation data (1 pixel / 90meters) so if you want better detail you have to google "usgs seamless" and get 10m USA data
