High Res

This may fall into the category of an addon to the core atlas client,
but i think it would be really cool to have maps of the various subregions, built from minimap data,
the data could be acquired from taking screenshots of http://mapwow.com/.
And I have a feeling it would be fairly easy to implement, considering there are already other addons that just add more maps to atlas.

Anyway, thats my two cents.

The data would be acquired using the same method as mapwow (and how we make instance maps) by extracting the blp files from the game.

Atlas is an instance map browser, what you suggest would be ideal for a plugin though.

Is what you're describing at all like Yatlas?
