    What a monumental effort! Congratulation on a incredible publication. I bought one then had to buy one for several family members. This will be a treasure house of information for years to come.

    Does this site have a current map of LDS missions?

    On the “The Church in Eastern North America, 2012” map, Nauvoo should have a triangle since there is a temple there.

  5. Steve Rogers says:

    I really enjoy all the maps. However I noticed that on the above map of the church in Eastern North America that the Nauvoo temple is not indicated by a red triangle symbol.

    My granddaughter is leaving the day after tomorrow for a mission in Peru. Is it possible for me to get a high-resolution map of that country?

      Not on this site. I learned recently when my son left on his mission that it is harder these days to find a nice wall map of a country or city than it once was. The downside of Google Maps, I suppose. I ended up making a wall map of his mission myself, “only” took me about 20 hours.

  7. Jason says:

    Very complicated website. I can’t figure out exactly what I’m supposed to do here on the site. Very poor information flow.

  8. Thomas says:

    Don’t forget the newly announced Rio de Janeiro temple.

    • Brandon says:

      These maps are what was in the atlas, so they haven’t been updated with recent changes. I wish I had the time to constantly keep them up to date.

  9. Hello just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

    These maps are amazing. I would love to see a map of Joseph Smith’s travels throughout the United States, including all his missionary work.

    Brandon, I love your site! The following tidbit of info may not be of interest to you, but I thought I’d share it in case you might want to add it to a map. While serving as stake president in Iowa City, we built a new stake center on what may be the highest point in town. During construction, a older farmer stopped by and spoke with the foreman. He said his grandfather told him stories of the Mormons who had camped on this hill. Unfortunately, the foreman did not get the farmer’s name. It was a fitting confirmation of the site’s significance to me. I felt this was the place for the stake center, despite many problems in getting it and looking at 32 other sites. The site looks across university land to the Mormon Handcart Park. Given the park’s location, most people may assume the Saints camped near the creek. That would be the worst spot in the summer with mosquitos ever present. The hill would have been the coveted location, right where the stake center now is!
