I extracted all of the tiles for the whole graphic. There are some real gems in there. This must have been so much work to make.

I don't get it, did I miss something?

Yeah, click and drag the big image.
It's a terrible way to view it imo. I'll never get to see it all in it's current form and something that took that much time to be made should be seen. I hope someone makes a google maps like interface.

Edit:

I didn't want to re-post any content hosted by XKCD, only link to it. Since others have already ignored the copyright issue, go here instead:

Edit: post removed due to people complaining of performance issues. If you browser was lagging it means you need more RAM.

Okay I can't post the rest for 2 reasons. First, there is a post character limit of 60000 and the other quadrants exceed this limit. Second, displaying all of those images will cause most people's machine to run out of memory.

Perhaps a link to a site with the whole thing would be more helpful? (And also it might make it so that people can actually load this forum page :roll: )

Thanks. Post removed.

FWIW if your machine couldn't load the page you need more RAM. When images are decompressed they take up a huge amount of memory.

Wow, that is one BIIIIG cartoon - I've only just finished exploring it all, which very quickly became an obsession. I would have loved to live in the age of world exploration. Now it seems a shame that we know the world as well as we do. :cry:

Here's a very smooth zoomable visualization of this xkcd webcomic (it works like Google Maps)

No no, it loads fine, It was just a bit of hyperbole :|
I did have quite a bit of fun exploring this comic this morning, although I didn't realise the tower was meant to be the Burj Kalifa until it zoomed out. Just a thought though, is that to scale?
