My name is Mike J Nagle. I have been creating political maps of the world related to the 1632/Ring of Fire series since December, 2016.
Some of the maps show the political situation at the Time of the Ring of Fire; that is, on May 25, 1631. These maps are historically accurate for the Original Timeline. Other maps show the situation at a later date in the New Timeline.
Each map is available at full-size resolution and half-size resolution.
These maps are all works in progress. While they are essentially finished, I am constantly making corrections and adding new information to them. If you last downloaded one of them more than a month ago, you may want to download it again, since it might have been changed since then.
I am still creating new maps. As each is completed, I will add it to this page.
I am sincerely grateful to 1632.org for allowing me to include my maps on their website.

|The East Indies and Indochina at the end of 1636|
The situation in the East Indies at the end of 1636.
A general-reference map of Southeast Asia at the end of 1636. 1636: The China Venture and 1636—The Chrysanthemum, the Dragon, and the Cross are currently in the works. Sometime in the hopefully-not-too-distant future, they should be published. When they are, the situation in southern China, Formosa (Taiwan), and the Philippines will certainly need to be revised to reflect the NTL changes that will be introduced by the novels.
Meanwhile, Formosa and the Philippines are not accurate for the end of 1636 (NTL). They are only accurate up to the end of 1634.
