Tricksie, thank you so much for the map you posted it's very close to what I've been looking for. As I have mentioned, in my story Naruto has sent a mother ship the Konoha Naval Ship (KNS) Revenge and it's compliment of combat river craft and Shinobi teams to the Gaikotsu Bay and then send the boats up the river that cuts through Iron into Rice for raids on Orochimaru's bases as Sound is more of a series of such locations and not a true village, at least not yet. The reason that they have to take this route is that in the story I'm writing no treaty exists with Waterfall for the use of their water ways and in real life I didn't have this map to show me that there is a second route to the sea via river from Konoha.
This is just one use I've had for a map like this, the others are so I can see where anyone is going for missions and get an idea of how long the trip would most likely be. Three days running from Konoha to Wave could happen since the first Marathon was to send a message to Greek forces after Thermopoli but that was 26 miles and it took a few hours. Based on that, what I know from mine and my son's military experience the pace set in canon was still a little too fast for an old man, Tazuna, to maintain. With this map I can now say in my story that it's going to take at least a week of pushing hard to reach Suna from Konoha. It's going to take longer as once Naruto and his party meet their Namekazi guides the plan is two weeks of learning to survive in the desert. That clan didn't die with Minato in my story but still live as they've always have, as nomadic traders. Kind of like the merchants on the old Silk Road linking Europe with Asia via the Middle East. Naruto is a member of the clan but not as important as Konoha has always made Minato out to be, he's actually the son of a bastard father since Minato's parents never married until years after his death. If you want to know more you'll need to read Tip Of The Spear at FFN.
That's not a shameless plug but more of a good reason the map is important to my story. It helps me to build a believable world over the life of the story and let's me shape the way the characters live, fight and react to situations. Because I now know where places are in the world I can now plan the next mission after the ones currently active. Naruto is going to send several teams to Sora to salvage what they can in the way of gaining some form of airpower in the event that Snow/Spring refuses to provide Konoha a few airships. This is not canon Naruto, I never intended it to be but it's an AU with a very smart, strong and young Naruto getting his village for a war that he's doing his best to delay but one that will happen in the next four years. He also has Sakura as his loving wife by his side as well as at least one other strong girl later on. Canon pairings were tossed out the window and the Uchiha had more than a few survivors of the massacre, Sasuke still loses his parents but still has lots of cousins still living. His fiance is not who you'd expect but no one has complained, she is after all a good blank slate to build on.
I'm sorry that this is so long but I can't help but be excited at the possibilities this map has given my story. Once again thank you very much for this map, it's already a big help to Tip Of The Spear.
