The website is designed to display useful information on top of the map layer and link to additional details on the Westeros. If you haven't finished reading the novels or watching the shows, you can hide any details that might spoil the plot. Simply drag the slider in the top-right corner to the last chapter or episode that you've completed. You can move the slider with arrow buttons in order to animate the characters' paths. Keep in mind that the slider only controls this map; any page you may open on the wiki site may contain spoilers.
Martin had reached a suitable level of fame where his books could also get this treatment. Originally the plan was to simply reproduce the maps already in the books, but this felt a little unambitious. The idea was to produce a series of canonical, definitive maps stretching all the way from the Lonely Light the western-most of the Iron Islands, located far to the west of Westeros in the Sunset Sea to the much-discussed, never-before-seen Asshai and the Shadow Lands in the distant east. George R. Martin agreed, although he also clarified this was going to be the most that he wanted mapped of his world. In a wry nod to Robert Chambers and his influential book The King in Yellow which, among others, was inspirational for H. Lovecraft and his Cthulu Mythos , Martin also added a city called Carcosa to the far eastern edge of the map.
