[edit] Labeled time zones

Regarding your comment on 1799: Bad Map Projection: Time Zones. You wrote:

I created a map overlaid with more obvious time zone divisions, labelled with some of that zone's more popular abbreviations. Tried to keep 'em to Standard Time rather than Daylight. Seen here. --VonAether (talk) 17:39, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

And I answered:

Fantastic VonAether. I was just thinking of making such a map, but your looks much better than what I had in mind. Would it be OK to download your map to these pages and insert it in the explanation? --Kynde (talk) 19:57, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

Hope to hear from you by putting the comment also here. :-) --Kynde (talk) 19:57, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

Absolutely; that's why I made it. Go nuts. :) --VonAether (talk) 21:07, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
Great. As you can see from my contribution list I am nuts. Just glad I did not also have to make this map. Is there an easy way for you to put those lines you have made for your map, onto a real political map, showing how they do not fit with the countries? Because if that is easy for you to do it could be a great way to compare the real map to this time zone one. (And if you can, same size would be fantastic.) But no pressure ;-) I will post your answer here above, in the discussion for the comic, so people can see it was OK for me to post it. Thanks again. --Kynde (talk) 21:30, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
