Look at the existing maps 'Dawn of Ages' and 'Midgard'. Both have parallels with a Lord of the Rings theme, but aren't specifically connected to it.
Not necessarily, we already have the Tamriel map of which Skyrim is a part.
@ edjenoh: Nice start for the map although doing the xml for it is possibly a little premature given the gameplay and graphics are likely to change significantly before this reaches final forge. (as is the case with most first drafts). MB is right however in that copyright will be the first and biggest thing you have to overcome. There is no point putting work into this map if it cannot be used for legal reasons. As a result, before you do anything else you need to look into the copyright.
Here's the thread for the original Tamriel map: viewtopic.php?t=1129
It looks like it was done very early on in CC and apparently they've never asked for copyright so sadly that's no help. Unfortunately all maps need permission from the copyright holder nowadays so you will need to get hold of that before you do any more.
