Map of Ponyville - Photo Guide - v3.2 by Aurek-Skyclimber Map of Ponyville - Photo Guide - v3.2 by Aurek-Skyclimber
Version 3.2 - Created using only what can be found in-show (up to the end of Season 3) and the official Map of Equestria: noval.deviantart.com/art/Eques…

Links to other maps!

Notes
--------------
1. Anything that is in the green grassy zones surrounding Ponyville proper (i.e. not within a stone's throw of other located houses so I can gauge probable distances) is a rough placement. Examples of rough placement include the entirety of Sweet Apple Acres, Fluttershy's, etc. It's probably in that general direction and placement compared to the other items on the map, but it could be within a very large range of distances from the other objects.

1.a) Items within the magenta boundaries are from elsewhere on the map. Follow the line and reference the other two versions of the map to see where they are supposed to be located.

2. The largest change to the map this time around is actually in the outskirts of Ponyville. In the interest of scale, Canterlot, Cloudsdale, etc. have been removed, leaving just Ponyville and its immediate surroundings. On the other hoof, Sweet Apple Acres, the Everfree, and a handful of other items have been thoroughly adjusted to match the official Equestria map and various other features that have come to light (My apologies to Ms. Faust).

3. The (few remaining) dark tan lines in the middle of town are possible building locations. There are still locations that we haven't seen yet (or I missed), so these lines are my best guesses as to where buildings will go once we do see that segment of road.

And YES you can use this map for whatever you like. I don't own MLP:FiM or anything in it, so that handles the legal side of things. And I want people to use the map for whatever purposes they can think of (the crazier the better) so that handles the personal side of things. Anywho, here's to hoping this helps everypony with their projects. I'm looking forward to seeing what turns up. :D

*Brohoof Back*  Thank you kindly!  And to answer your question, semi-carefully.  I've been working on this intermittently since the end of Season 1, and have seen things grow and change while mostly staying the same.  Assuming you've been through my gallery, you've seen the countless reference images and the detailed guides.  As new locations were revealed and/or I realized new facts about old places, the appropriate alterations were made ( On the off chance you're interested in the seeing the various iterations: www.dropbox.com/sh/lmg2qnyz75o… ).  Just think of this as a really big 3d puzzle that gives out a couple of new puzzle pieces every week or so.

Here's the current list of goals for when I get the time in order of priority: 1. Create ref pics for each episode.  2. Update the existing maps as needed.  3. Update the exterior and interior guides as needed.  4. Create new exterior/interior guides for Ponyville locations as needed (there are still several interior guides for existing locations that I need to finish).  5. Create a map of the Crystal Empire (should be fairly easy).  6. Create a map of Canterlot.  (There has plenty of details given so far for several individual locations, but, as far as I can tell, most of them are scattered about the city with minimal shown bits that connect to other subzones/locations.  Then again, I really haven't done any serious analysis, so it just might be feasible.  However, keep in mind that Ponyville is my main focus, so Canterlot is way back on the list.  Sorry!)

np its just Canterlot (to me) seems like the kind of place that is of big importance, but i don't know a lot about it. so i was just interested in a map if possible but good luck on your ponyville map and i cant wait to see the crystal empire one

Thank you for this I'm using it in Minecraft on the XBL verison. It's looking great. I'll post images and credit you.

 

Just wondering but I couldn't find Applejack's Barn I see the Cow Barn. Where is it? I thought I saw it but I must be blind this map is huge. Thanks again!

I'm afraid I left the south portion of Sweet Apple Acres off of this map.  If I had included it, the pic would be even more massive than it is now, with half of it being trees. ^^  Just check any of the other main maps ( aurebesh.deviantart.com/art/Ma… ) and you should be able to make out the general layout just south of town.

very useful. though it is still difficult to really get a real image of distances. f.e. how much time would you need to walk from the library to town square?

They change the geometry / landscape all of the time. This happens even in the same season. Sometimes even in the same episode. Buildings will change shape, have different features -- be drawn mirrored form the front/back and then changed later. Most people probably don't notice, and it doesn't really matter I guess, but it's really annoying when trying to reproduce stuff.

Man, I've been trying to see this one for days, but dA gives me a corrupt image on the big and download versions.
Do you have a backup somewhere else online? I swear I've reloaded and deleted the cache endlessly for three days.
I just get a broken icon. =(
Only on this image. The others work allright... (?)

OBJECTION!

One can't just place the school based upon the fence alone. There are multiple fences in Ponyvill, couple that with the reuse of Flash animation assets and you can find the same fence in multiple spots.

To counter act multiple aerial shots that show where the school is, you need to have a very good reason.

:iconaurek-skyclimber:
Aurek-Skyclimber Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
That would be due to Fluttershy's house not being on this particular map version. We're zoomed in too far. If you follow the road on the west side of town past the cow barn, it's right over there. Just check out the labeled map, and you'll see it.

It's located all along the east side of town. You see where it says "The Park"? That's actually part of Whitetail. I just haven't marked the Woods on here yet... Probably should.

One partial world map coming right up! [link] Sadly not the whole thing, but combine this with the other maps and you've got a fairly large sized chunk of the country figured out.
