App of the Week: GoT Map helps you navigate the world of Game of Thrones

From Winterfell to Qarth, the known world in the exceedingly popular fantasy TV series Game of Thrones is a large place.

It’s easy to get confused about the world’s geography in the midst of all the quick locational changes and references that occur every episode, leaving many viewers wishing for a version of Google Maps dedicated specifically to the three imaginary continents of Westeros, Essos and Sothoryos.

Thankfully, a resource very similar has arrived in the form of GoT Map, also known as Map for Game of Thrones. It’s an extensive mobile resource, featuring an interactive colour map complete with legend and short descriptions of each location. Pinching and enlarging certain areas of the map reveals communities of lesser size, allowing the user to delve in and explore in-depth. A sidebar also offers episode recaps and character biographies, histories and quotes.

This is the perfect companion for any avid Game of Thrones viewer, and, for that matter, any reader of the A Song of Ice and Fire series.

It’s available in two versions, a free version for both iOS and Android supported by ads, and a premium, ad-free version that retails for $1.16 on the Google Play Store and $1.39 on the App Store.
