In a land as vast as the Seven Kingdoms, it can be easy to lose track of what's what and who's where. If only there was some kind of medieval answer to Google maps... As it turns out, there is.

The interactive map created by a fan who calls himself theMountainGoat not only provides a detailed guide to Westeros and Essos, it also allows you to follow the path of all of your favorite characters. It's pretty amazing to trace the epic journeys takenby the likes of Daenerys Targaryen and Arya Stark. Clicking on each place or any of the character names opens a window with more information from A Wiki of Ice and Fire.

And that's not all. The map also details the sigils of all the noble houses you can think of in their proper locations, showing how complex the social structure of Game of Thrones really is. It's pretty easy to see why Ayra struggled with her homework back in the first season!

Don't worry if you're not caught up with the latest episodes yet either - the map also features a super helpful slider which only allows you to see information relevant to the point you're up to. Readers of the book series are catered for by a chapter slider too. Check out some of the most familiar places from the map below (spoilers!).

1. King's Landing

The capital city, home to the royal residence and the coveted Iron Throne. Many battles have taken place here, including this riot during King Joffrey's reign:

2. Winterfell

The original seat of the Starks, the castle at Winterfell is thousands of years old. Flashback to a the very first episode with this clip of the King's arrival:

3. The Wall

The colossal fortification that defends the realm from the Wildings that live beyond and the home of the Night's Watch. Learn more about the Wall from brother Sam Tarly in the video below:

4. The Twins

The seat of the Freys is the only crossing point over the River Trident for hundreds of miles in either direction and was the site of the infamous red wedding. See a clip from that fateful day here:

5. The Dothraki Sea

The largest region on the continent of Essos inhabited by the Dothraki people and ruled by the khal and khaleesi. Watch Daenerys' final days in the region before moving west:
