B.C. map recreated to match Game of Thrones locations

What would your city be if it was in Game of Thrones? That's the question Andrew Cuthbert asked himself when he created a map trying parallel the geography from Game of Thrones in British Columbia.

Andrew Cuthbert's map is full of 'tongue-in-cheek' comparisons

What would your city be if it was in Game of Thrones? That's the question Andrew Cuthbert asked himself when he created a map trying parallel the geography from Game of Thrones in British Columbia.

Cuthbert admited his comparisons are tongue-in-cheek in an interview with CBC Radio's Rick Cluff on The Early Edition. 

"The whole map is supposed to be a joke, so it's meant to be taken in good faith," said Cuthbert. 

Have a look through Cuthbert's comparisons. 

  • Barrowtown: Hazelton - an unremarkable place centred around a hill.
  • Castle Black: Fort Nelson - the last stop before the wall.
  • Deepwood Motte: Dease Lake - a northern outpost no one seems to want to keep.
  • Dragonstone: Whistler - where rich people go to play; famous for people riding things.
  • Gulltown: Queen Charlotte City - a port city serving an isolated population.
  • Hardhome: Stewart - poor stranded souls.
  • Harrenhal: Ocean Falls - an abandoned place of past wealth.
  • High Garden: Victoria - a city of rich people who really run the show; old money.
  • Karhold: Smithers - a solid and loyal village, friend to the north.
  • King's Landing: Vancouver - the economic capital of the region; full of the very rich and very poor.
  • Lannisport: Kelowna - a town of riches populated by shallow blondes.
  • Pyke: Prince Rupert - the home to a surly, wet and dirty people of the sea.

  • Sunspear: Osoyoos, an exotic and very hot locality; people have a love for wine. 
  • The Dreadfort: Chetwynd - a cursed place.
  • The Eyrie: Nelson - isolated by mountains; respected home to people who mean well but are crazy.
  • The Twins: Barkerville - a local outpost run by an old man who loves gold.

  • White Harbour: Port Hardy - a major seaport servicing the north.
