There are lots of different types of maps of Isaan, including newer ones that have the latest Isaan province of Bueng Kan shown — this new entity used to be the western section of Nong Khai Province.
The satellite maps are certainly novel, such as this one at Mapcarta. It’s a great map if you’re already familiar with where the Isaan Region of Thailand lies and can safely zoom in to see detailed sections of it. But if someone is unfamiliar with Isaan and has no clear idea what exactly it comprises, then a map like this will be useless. And zooming in is only going to get that map visitor hopelessly lost.
I quite like the hand-drawn Maps Of Thailand – Isaan (North East Thailand) at Chiang-Mai.org, even if I have a Devil of a time figuring out the borders of provinces. Nonetheless, the maps are great for naming places of interest such as parks; a quick browse turned up other features such as a waterfall and even a ‘Bat Cave.’
For a map clearly naming and identifying the boundaries of all of the Isaan provinces, just refer to Wikipedia‘s article Isan. Wikipedia is normally very prompt about updating itself, but for some reason it has failed to add Bueng Kan to its map of numbered Isaan provinces even though the province is included in the map legend as province #20. Possibly the map may be changed by the time you are reading this May 8 (2012) post, but I am presently editing it on November 3 (2012), and that change has still not been made.
Website Isaan.com maps out a very few of the provinces of Isaan in a fashion that would be very useful to a tourist — just refer to the Maps link in the index bar that extends across the top of the page and select whichever area might interest you. Why it omits so many Isaan provinces while including the likes of Ayutthaya Province that is well outside of Isaan is something the owner of Isaan.com would need to explain.
Those Google interactive-style maps are available all over the Web, such as these ones at Go-Thailand.com and Thailand-Ticket.de. If they make you happy, then fine — use one of them. I am not too much of a fan. The blogger who owns Isaan Maps bases his entire blog upon posting such maps; he modifies them according to what he may have come across while visiting the area and felt was worth adding to the maps.
By the way, Thailand-Ticket.de has a very nice (although somewhat dated) ISAN MAP – Nord-Ost Thailand Karte.
Now here are some Isaan map-related references I’ve selected that you may enjoy or find of interest:
