    Topographical map of the Flanaess

    Never having played more than a few modules in the setting, I've decided to run a campaign for my kids and their friends, and have jumped into Greyhawk with both feet,

    I like to plan out campaign weather for 2 -4 weeks. Page 18 of the Glossography has a wonderful tool, with only 1 missing element, altitude.

    Is there a map, or any other reference for that matter, detailing altitude above sea level for the various topographical features/cities of the Flanaess?

    I could take a couple of days and estimate for my campaign, but if it already exists, I'd rather stay true to canon.

    Take a look at Anna Meyer's site ghmaps.net. She has done some experimenting with topographical maps.

    I was looking for that as well for my excel based weather calculator (next VBA project). Thanks!

    Yep, Anna Meyer's maps may have the topographical information you are looking for.

    Anna's beautiful maps is one of the first places I looked. I'll check again to see if there is a layer I missed.

    What I'll be delighted to find is indications about elevation for cities, mountains etc. but I don't think this material exists...

    No luck with additional study of the Anna Maps. I think we had a few recent forum discussions, but they were more talking about elevation in broad terms. For my project, I am planning to key localities with latitudes and elevations, but I guess I shall have to generate them largely myself.
