A Cartographer's wet dream?

Or nightmare?

So, I've named "Exploration Officer" for Athiza, which basically means that I have to draw up a few maps. "Yeah, sure, easy. This will be fun," I thought to myself when initially presented the challenge. But now, a week later, I'm going insane considering all the factors that wield influence over this planet. Climate patterns. Atmospheric circulation cells. Ocean currents. Tectonic plates. The list goes on, it's really quite mad when you think about it.

I need to draw now.
My arms are shaking from the three mugs of chai I just consumed (with one more to go).
A pencil sharpener would be nice.
As would Paul being here to help me discover this world, because I'm not sure I can do it on my own.
