James L. Sutter is a game designer and last week he took to Twitter to share his remarks on the real map of New Orleans

Sutter is best known as the co-creator of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, and according to him, New Orleans’ map looks like something submitted by an amateur freelancer

Being an expert in fictional map creation, the author criticized it’s many seemingly nonsensical parts

Like this canal that is perfectly linear…

Or why is Lake Borgne called ‘lake’ when it’s actually a lagoon?

And then the placement of Lake Pontchartrain Causeway that expands for 24 miles (38km)?

Sutter elaborates on the texture of the swamps of Louisiana, pointing out that no cartographer would work on replicating it

James Sutter finishes his rant by saying that this map looks interesting but it is simply not believable

He jokingly recommends the South to rework the map of New Orleans and resubmit it when it looks like a real city
