3d map of Beleriand, begging stages

I have made this 3d map of Beleriand, which i know is still quite rough, but i think at least you can get a little bit of an idea from it of how things look from a 3 dimensional standpoint.  I am currently working on getting some labels for the major places. 


Now my problem, how do i upload it? Any help would be appreciated

Type a link to it so we can get to it that way. Otherwise TM will probably know.

you can use special sites such as

FLICKR

where you can upload your photos from your PC on the site, you get your own account and may upload up to 20 MB of data each month I think

then you just neet to click the IMG button above the posting box, enter the link of the picture from flickr, and TA-DA! you have your map

This will however only work if it is a pic....since it is 3d I guess it might not be case, and in this case you have to talk to The One

very nicely done
btw if you need help regarding names of places/forests/mountains etc don't hesitate to ask
if you wish I may also post a list of all these things and their whereabouts

Very unusual Turgolfin. Haven't seen one of those before.


If you need place names then they are all in the back of the Silmarillion book under the Beleriand maps.


However if your doing other maps like this on obscurer places of Arda I recommend Lord Lorien, he knows a lot about geography, or perhaps even The One if he has the time...

Thanks all for the offers of help.  I have not decided yet on how i am going to label them, but definatly the map in sil is great and what i used for reference when builing it.  I am figuring out whether i just want to put the basic labes like in the map, or if i want to be a little more detailed and put things down like maybe where thingol and melian met, or maybe where key battles took place.  If i put too much in i think it might look a bit cluttered, but i will experiment a bit and see.

Wow, that looks great. I never thought of using SimCity (which I love) to render maps of Tolkien's world.

Also, the Encyclopedia of Arda has always been an immensely helpful resource for me. It's very rare that I have a question about a location, event, or person that it cannot answer.
