Map of Gobwin Knob and neighbours
Map from the comic page 41, straightened, cleaned and with a little bit more contrast on some places.

@╒╦╧╬╩╦╦╛ Heheh, I hadn't read the forum posts before I straightened the map, but after I noticed that you had done it already I compared the two maps and they overlap quite well with a minimal stretch and turn so I think we both did good. :D
The white areas on corners are the unknown areas that were cut by the comic panel and the large white areas in the center are the light gray areas of the comic panel's map that were really easy (at least for me) to mix with Faq, Hobbittm and Charlescomm. I think they are just neutral areas, if they were mountains the Faq would have a white (or light grey) ring around it. The darker blue dot in Charlescomm area is possibly the capital and it's surroundings, I wasn't sure so I decided not to write anything that wasn't already described in the comic panel.
Spruce, thanks for making this.
I have added the co-ordinates that we learned for the locations of the capitals. These locations are from Book 3 - Page 30 - Agreement With Charlescomm. I would post it here but I can not figure out how, I have attached a link if anyone is interested. Space Rock is mapped three times further "south" of Faq (270 units)than Faq is of Charlescomm (89 units). However the given coordinates for Faq give a distance of only 63 MCS units.
This shows that either Jacks map perspective is way off, the intelligence is wonky, Erf is a very irregular shape, or Charlie (and the Titans) made a typo.
My theory on the white space is that its unclaimed unaroyal cities. There is nothing that says that GK conquered ALL of unaroyal before they marched to the capital; they may have only taken the cities to the west of Unaroyal leaving the east untouched. When the side fell, the remaining cities to the east went Neutral and thus we have our white space. GK may have never claimed those cities because Ansom wanted to concentrate next on pushing south to Spacerock. And for whatever reason none of the other sides claimed those cities. The map might also be incomplete; it was built from the memory of the various units but any foxmud/hyatt/sofaking units they have would not know of any recent gains by their former sides, like if they claimed any of those neutral cities for themselves.
Community/About -tab has information on the community stream submissions and what rights you give by submitting something, the dark grey box at the bottom of the webpage has information on how forum posts are treated. It looks like it depends mainly on is your work done and ready fanart/-stories or other Erf-related pictures and stories (to the stream or forums) or speculation (to the forums). Fanart can be speculative also, of course. Posting a pic/link as a response (like Frankie's pic of a map with coordinate lines, above) doesn't have limiting rules that I know of (I have understood that they still follow the disclaimer of the forum posts), outside the obvious no shocking/illegal stuff.
The picture files are hosted on the service that the user originally uploaded them into, I assume that all files are treated the same way.
The hex map would be interesting to see.
The black lines indicate every 50 hex marks (so -1300, -1250, -1200, etc. for x and 400, 450, 500, etc. for y). The yellow dots are either estimates of where the capital cities using the "center of the name" or their actual coordinates where available.
Dark green: fully green hexes, heavy forest or forest
Bright green: partly green hexes, forest or light forest
Tan: tan hexes, field
Dark brown: fully brown hexes, mountain, high hills or hills
Bright brown: partly brown hexes, hills or low hills
Blue: river and water hexes
Gray: faint gray lines on hexes, ?
Red: small red blobs, city
Pink: small pinkish/faded red blob, ?
White: unknown, blocked by Duncan, Jillian or panel edge
The three cities are possibly Progrock, Brookstone and Spacerock.
