Notes
--------------
1. Anything that is in the green grassy zones surrounding Ponyville proper (i.e. not within a stone's throw of other located houses so I can gauge probable distances) is a rough placement. Examples of rough placement include the entirety of Sweet Apple Acres, Fluttershy's, etc. It's probably in that general direction and placement compared to the other items on the map, but it could be within a very large range of distances from the other objects.

2. The largest change to the map this time around is actually in the outskirts of Ponyville. In the interest of scale, Canterlot, Cloudsdale, etc. have been removed, leaving just Ponyville and its immediate surroundings. On the other hoof, Sweet Apple Acres, the Everfree, and a handful of other items have been thoroughly adjusted to match the official Equestria map and various other features that have come to light (My apologies to Ms. Faust).

3. The (few remaining) dark tan lines in the middle of town are possible building locations. There are still locations that we haven't seen yet (or I missed), so these lines are my best guesses as to where buildings will go once we do see that segment of road.

And YES you can use this map for whatever you like. I don't own MLP:FiM or anything in it, so that handles the legal side of things. And I want people to use the map for whatever purposes they can think of (the crazier the better) so that handles the personal side of things. Anywho, here's to hoping this helps everypony with their projects. I'm looking forward to seeing what turns up. :D

Props to you. I wondered if someone had actually researched the matter of the layout of Ponyville, and I am very VERY glad that you have! Amazing job!

Just wanted to say that I use this all the time when I write stuff and am unsure about how to describe places or distances. It's super helpful!

Also... do you know where the location of the picnic in Lesson Zero is on this map? I can't seem to figure it out.

So where's Zecora's Hut in the Everfree?

I needed a Ponyville map for a Fan fic I was writing, because I needed to see how many buildings there are, from which you can see the Town square, and I needed to know where they are placed. Thanks for the help, and great map! :D

What scale is this to?

I wish I knew...  I just set arbitrarily sized shapes to represent each type of building that were somewhat the correct size compared to the other buildings, then put the buildings in the correct general places compared to each other.  If you can figure out the size of each building, you can probably figure out the size of Ponyville itself.

Ah. Well, I did do some rough calculations last week - assuming each common pony was a round 2' tall and 3' long and 1' wide, the Ponyville Town Hall turns out to roughly be 29' in diameter at the base, according to some of the show art.

So you, like me, feel that, hypothetically speaking, a pony standing on its hind legs would be about the same height and size as an average human, although slightly shorter (Due to the legs being a bit shorter)?
I just can't picture the ponies being any other size, although that could be because the 'familiar' objects (houses, buildings, plants, etc) are associated in my mind as being a specific size relative to the average human, although I suppose the pony world could be scaled more to the tune of, say, an actual horse.

That being said, units of length could be much different in Equestria than on Earth; perhaps the 'functional equivalent' (Not in terms of exact length, but instead in those of usage) of our 'twelve-inch foot' is similar to the 'cubit' (An ancient form of measure approximately equal to the length of the forearm). Perhaps the 'foreleg' is the base of measure in Equestria, for example. If one takes this into perspective, and assumes that the 'laws of physics' are the same in Equestria as here on Earth, then the size of the average pony, given the strength of muscle, bone and ligaments/tendons, could well exceed that of an average Earth counterpart of a horse. Then again, the opposite is also true; the average 'pony' could be the size of a cat, for all we know.

For simplicity's sake, and the sake of certain subsets of the MLP fanbase (which will go unspecified...), it is easier, and safer, to assume that 'ponies' are similar in size to humans. This being said, the 'cubit', in my case, about 9.5 inches or 24 centimeters, could likely be interchangeable on a 1:1 ratio with a hypothetical unit of measure based on a pony's foreleg, again, assuming ponies have a similar build to a human, possibly notwithstanding the hind legs, which would likely be shorter than our 'legs'.

When one considers the scale of one dimension, or even one world, compared to another, the lines are, sadly, always going to be blurry.

Fiction has a fragile set of rules... I know The Brony Notion made some measurements of his own. However, there may be a confirmation, if you were to take Equestria Girls into account. In Equestria Girls: Friendship Games: Bloopers, Human Rainbow rides Pony Rainbow. Maybe something to go by, that is, if you consider EqG (or even the blooper) canon.
