250MYF world map - terrain by Neethis 250MYF world map - terrain by Neethis
Heres a possible map of our world, 250 million years in the future, requested by :iconamongthesatanic: This is a map of the terrain of this future world, showing the arrangements of the continents (such as there are, what with this being a Pangean world) and the placement of mountains, icecaps and oceans.

The world is in the mid-glacial, like our own, but there is no longer a continent at the south pole; there isn't much of anything at the south pole in fact, only millions of square miles of sea-ice surrounded by great frigid circling currents, unbroken in their path around the pole. There is land at the north pole, however, as most of Eurasia has continued pushing northward over the eons, and a hefty ice cap sags over thousands of miles of what was once Finland, Siberia and Alaska.
The Himalayas have been worn away to lower Alp-like mountains; they were once down to foothills, after India stopped pushing north - they were only pushed back up by the breakaway margins of east Africa. The new "Roof of the World" is a great range which stretches from the 10km high ice-capped peaks formed by the Andes colliding with Mexico, to the great platau pushed up by Australia colliding with the Canadian Rockies.

Most of the rest should be pretty self-explanatory :) Feel free to ask any questions or comments.

Would humans survive or would there be a different species by then?

It could go either way, really. Humans, like all animals, still undergo evolution, but our unique lifestyle means that for the most part natural selection doesn't do much. We help those that would otherwise not survive a more primal lifestyle lead full and long lives, and technology gives us the ability to overcome events that could affect us, like outbreaks of disease. 250 million years is plenty of time for a significant amount of evolution to take place, so one of three scenarios seems plausible: humans remain largely the same biologically (civilization has been around for about 10,000 years, depending on who you ask, and the only significant changes in human physiology over that time has been that we have become larger and live longer lifespans, both results of increasingly effective medical technology, though 10,000 years is almost nothing in terms of evolutionary development); civilization collapses (perhaps multiple times) and humans evolve into a new species (or several different species) as they adapt to changing environments; or humans go extinct and a new intelligent species might evolve (though not necessarily, there's no reason that intelligent life must evolve). Of course, there's all kinds of stuff nobody can account for, so there may be more or fewer possible scenarios. Personally I think we'll still be around, and largely the same. There will probably be vastly different racial features, and we might have a few physiological differences by then: complete lack of an appendix, and the small toe might become much smaller (though not gone completely as the muscles connected to it are necessary for bipedal balance), more or less body hair depending on how the global environment changes (though the amount of body hair will likely still be a racial trait, much as it is today). Take all this with a grain of salt, I am by no means an expert, just a biology nerd, and nobody can know for certain what the future holds or how it might affect us or the planet.

Wow, you really know your stuff!

Nah, I'm just making an educated guess based on what I do know. I'm sure a expert could pick my statements apart sentence by sentence, but thanks for the compliment!

Could I use your map for a Star Wars fanfic?

What parts are which modern places?
Neethis Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
The very western edge is essentially western Europe (britain to spain) with a 90 degree rotated africa to the east (the mountain range is where the mediterranean used to be). The southern fractured continent is Antarctica. The eastern side of the map is a warped eroded north america, while south america has rotated to slip up the west coast Chile-first. Asia and Eastern Europe sit over the north pole, bordering Africa and north america, and between North/South america and Asia is squashed Australia :)

Hope that's clear enough

can you draw another Future Supercontinent map ??

like Pangaea Ultima.
