I did a bit of looking to verify this---the paper map has at least one 
spelling error on it that I know of ("Christiania" instead of 
"Christiana")---and I think that the Cyberboard map is the one that's in 

The city in question was known as Ekaterinoslav (or Yekaterinoslav) until 
1924, when it was renamed Dnepropetrovsk, the name it bears today. I'll 
have to fix my map...
