    Well I don´t think an official map of the entire world has been released. The reason for that I think is that GRRM hasn´t figured out exactly what it all looks like, because he is a lazy bastard and to give him a little freedom later, to form it as it suits him as he finishes the series.

    The only official maps are the regional ones found in the books. All the books have maps of westeros. Storm of swords have a map of the lands around slavers bay and the summer sea.

    The best map i think of westeros and the eastern continent together, are this one from the citadel:

    The gray areas are the official ones and the black areas are really just guestimates. But it is qualified guestiamates done by some knowledgeable people, and I am sure as much of it as possible is based on references in the books.

    If you want a map just of entire westeros this is my favorite. As far as I can tell it contains all the details from the four books, and the Dunk and Egg stories, and it has nice colours.

    Edit: I have just looked over the map and here are some things not there. It only has one of the names of the shield islands for example. Guess it was done before aFfC? There could be other things missing as well then.
