Thanks for the screencaps Wert
The location of Ibben tracks with the notes George sent about my speculative map. He also said the Summer Isles are further east and south, in line with the Narrow Sea and Naath, and the islands are much bigger too.
I'm working on an update but I've been waiting to see this new map from HBO before really getting into it. Do you know if it goes any further east? Qarth is the location we really need to see.

. This is my speculative map pasted onto a globe, though because of the stretching effect at the corners I have positioned the image over the equator rather than much farther north where it ought to be. I would like to find some way of positioning this so it avoids the stretching otherwise the Wall ends up being considerably less than 300 miles long which is a problem because this is what defines the map scale.
I really need to experiment with positioning a separate smaller image of the north of Westeros on the globe but I fear the problem with that will be lining it up perfectly with the rest of the landmass. Once the full map of the known world is finished some time early next year I will try to find a way to make this work.
