editor's review




Alternative World Map Creator is a small software application whose purpose is to help you create alternative world maps. It can be deployed on all Windows versions out there.

Alternative maps can be generated by altering locations that are usually displayed on normal maps. You are given the freedom to place a location at the top or bottom of the map.

For example, instead of showing the North Pole, you can set up your home location or any other place. The tool is able to automatically draw the longitude lines from a custom place to the opposite side of the planet and create a new map.

Clean feature structure

Alternative World Map Creator sports an intuitive layout that allows you to easily get an idea about how to tweak the dedicated parameters. A help manual is not included in the package but you can venture into setting up the options on your own because they look easy to digest.

Configuration settings

The application gives you the possibility to create alternative maps by simply picking and placing a spot on the world map. The tool automatically reveals the distorted map in the main window and allows you to choose between several preset size options.

What’s more, you can manually enter the top latitude and longitude coordinates, preview the final map in a dedicated panel (there’s no support for zooming options and full screen mode; just a simple display of the map is generated), as well as export the image to BMP file format to a custom location on your computer.

The output quality of the maps is very good so you can use them as your desktop wallpapers or include them in your projects. Tests have shown that Alternative World Map Creator creates maps quickly. It eats up from a minimal up to a moderate amount of CPU and memory resources.

Final remarks

All things considered, Alternative World Map Creator comes packed with a straightforward suite of features for helping you come up with alternative maps, and can be configured by rookies and professionals alike.
