In a "two for the price of one" mapping attempt, I made this map as my entry in one of Cartographer's Guild Challenges and a slightly different version that will eventually be part of my City Blocks Kickstarter Project.

It's a fantastic map, great job bogie. But I have a problem with aligning the squares on roll20.

That is because the maps was made at 200 dpi, exported at 100 dpi and Roll2 uses 70 DPI.

The map itself is exactly 32 inches wide by 40 inches tall.  The border is 1 inch wide, so with the border the total is 34 in wide by 42 in tall.

To get it to fit in Roll 20, open a new map space, set the map grid size to 34" w x 42" T.  Upload the map into the grid, it should be much smaller than the grid base.  Grab the top left corner of the map and pull it up to the top left corner of the grid.  Then grab the bottom right corner of the map and pull it diagonally down to the bottom Right corner of the grid.  Now the map should exactly fill the grid base you made and the map grid should match the Roll 20 grid.   With the exception of the storeroom in the top left corner of the map.  The floor was a separate texture and is not aligned with the rest of the map.
  ( Here's a little hint though:  Turn off Roll 20's grid and you can move your tokens anywhere you want, they don't snap back to the center of the grid, and it is much more natural. )
