They do overlap, their is even a quest that crosses the maps. You can even see a famous Arid Sea statue from Crystal Overlook, their are a ton of posts about it, I have even seen it myself.
By the way, you left out the Battle Isles on your map.

I havent been there very often and never really read what the NPC'S have to say, I think I will go have a read and see if I can learn anything about the location.
Another note about the map, I think I read in the manual that the Corsairs control the waters between Istan and North West Cantha, should that not place Cantha slightly south east of Elona?
I hope some day A.Net release a full official map.

hmmm how do you know that cantha is that far away?

judging by some of the discriptions here, i would say the stickied map is slightly wrong, in that Cantha should be on the right side of the map, not left. maybe the land mases form a ring around a central ocean/sea at this point in the story line (think Mediterainian Sea) with the battle islands in the center as suggested.

The Charr are from Cantha? Why haven't I met any there...

If you check your view from the CD side, you'll see the landscape going higher and higher.
Coz, we can't have Cantha "South-West" of Lion's Arch and at the same time "South-East" of Elona, even if we have the full landmass of Cantha it is still impossible, coz the lands East and South of Cantha are not part of the "Continent of Cantha" anymore.
UPDATE: typo - should be "South-West of Lion's Arch/Tyria" and "South-East of Elona".

If Cantha is South-West of Tyria, and Elona is South of the Crystal Desert, then Cantha is South-West of Elona.
Cantha being South-East of Elona is just not possible, if Cantha is South-West of Tyria, because Elona is South of the Crystal Desert, and the Crystal Desert is part of Tyria,
or to put it another way,
Cantha couldn't be South-East of Elona if Tyrians are saying that Cantha is South-West of Tyria.
UNLESS the Planet of Tyria is smaller than we all originally are thinking.
Coz if Planet Tyria is smaller, as in smaller, then it becomes possible to have Cantha both "South-West of Tyria" and "South-East Elona".
Remember, Elona and Tyria are connected, thus when you make a directional relation from either Tyria or Elona, you are also referring to the other continent.
That's why I believe that part of the NF manuscript was a typo, it isn't South-East, it is South-West of Elona.

now you are completly confusing me. first you said:
Coz, we can't have Cantha "South-East" of Lion's Arch and at the same time "South-West" of Elona
and now you have said that it is the opposite way around....
also, where did you get that Cantha is South West of Tyria? these are the only 2 things i have seen in regards to the location of Cantha
