Is it possible to create a map, where all the previous clines are assembled?

It would be very interesting.

It's quite easy to superimpose maps, but it doesn't always look nice. Another problem is that the scale is not always the same. For rarer haplogroups for instance, I used finer scales (1-2.5% instead of 1-5%, for example), so you cannot compare based on colour intensities alone.
