Datum Line is a specialty shop in Ta'Vaalor. It is located in the Burghal Gnome Enclave, southwest of the Great Dome. It sells maps and mapping implements.

[The Datum Line]
The stone walls are crowded with wooden bookshelves, their lacquered heights brushing the low, carved ceiling. In the middle of the chamber sits a wooden table, unremarkable save for its top surface, which is a raised and plastered topographical map. Similar maps, though of different areas, are piled in a corner of the room, underneath the tripod base of a brass alidade and compass.
