The Cartographers of Tolkien's Middle-earth
This infography is litteraly a "map of maps" : it shows, under the form of a phylogenetic tree, the relation between Middle-earth maps and cartographers. 

As in a Sankey diagram, the branch thickness is proportional to the importance of the map. 

I retained only influential or interesting maps, on my point of view (limited and subjective). I apologize for the cartographers I forgotten.

This infography was created at the same time as the writing of an essay about cartographers of Middle-Earth :
www.tolkiendil.com/essais/geog…

The frames concerning J.R.R. Tolkien and Chr. Tolkien are based on the list of maps published by the french website Tolkiendil :
www.tolkiendil.com/essais/geog…

John Howe produced 4 "official" maps. See details in this infography :

Thiepval and surroundings
This map represents the town of Thiepval (France) during the Battle of the Somme in World War 1. 
J.R.R. Tolkien was engaged in the conflict as a Lieutenant in Lancashire Fusiliers. 
This experience was very important in his writer life, as revealed by Jonh Garth in his book Tolkien and the Great War, Boston, Houghton Mifflin (2003).

British army was located below the blue dashed line, and red lines represent German positions (principal trenches and redoubts).  

Note that the vertical scale is deliberately exaggerated, two lines are vertically separated by 20 meters : the real battlefield is flatter than this representation. It is clear that the German troops are entranched in a favorable position compared to the British troops. 

The contourlines, and the river course, were extracted from a trench map available at the following adress : http://maps.nls.uk/view/101723165.
