This version of the world map has been improved with a new Tyria-Elona coastline based on information from Guild Wars 2. This will hopefully be the last major iteration of this map, but i'll probably keep adding places as they are names in Guild Wars Beyond.
The right side of Cantha is the biggest conjecture; the position of the Battle Isles is deduced from in-game text and slightly closer to Cantha since they control it. Elona and Tyria are aligned as per this image:
Here's the standard size versions:
12MB Extra Large version
18MB Extra Large version w/Textured Background
Illustrator file with the icons I created for the map (as brushes)
Large with Symbols, no text
Large with No Text and No Symbols
Standard disclaimers apply: This is a fanwork and any geographic mistakes are mine, this map represents the best guess as to the geography and areas as presented in game.
Thanks to everyone who's suggestions have added and improved this map over the years!

Wonderful map that makes it much easier to unify my image of the Guild Wars world.

Wow, great work! Can't imagine how much time you must have put into it!

Even though I didn't have anything to do with the following video, I'm a little proud that the winning entry for the GW2 Ambassador Contest used this map as a background image. Congrats guys.

A prod to auserator (would a PM be better?): The map is now out of date! At least two things to note (perhaps more?):
That isn't Jormag under Drakkar Lake, but his champion (deceptive Anet); and you're missing Embark Beach.
There also appears to be a handful of missing landmarks from Shing Jea, but that's probably cuz of so many in such small space.

I've swapped Jormag back to 'Drakkar', although maybe 'Champion of Jormag' might be better - if longer. And i've added Embark Beach.
I may have omitted a few Shing Jea landmarks because of space, but I don't mind re-evaluating them if someone would like to list the missing ones.
Also I had forgotten the 'grounds' part of the area name 'Zaishen Menagerie Grounds', just added it back in.
Anything else I'm missing? I could have a new map ready in a few days.

With the press beta we learned of the name that Verdant Cascades is a part of (Verdant Forest, surprise surprise) and of the desolate-looking island (Janthir! or "Isles of Janthir" as the GW2 map calls it).
