Has anyone made a map of the world, or even just the Med and ANE?

You want larger maps than what comes with freeciv? GM1530 scenarios has a couple of large Earth maps (among many others). The pack is available in the default list of the modpack installer.

I made this beautiful map a while ago. In contrast to the below mentioned ones mine was hand crafted, meaning every tile has been turned upside down and therefore doesn't look autogenerated.
Specials are more evenly and realistically distributed and fauna/heights/climate zones are much closer to reality and also rivers follow more actual paths (if it all showed on the auto generated).

The same counts for my "animated" scenarios.
