The Gray square is the "ground" level.
The green octagon is the water level.
The white square is inside the invisible barrier.

The pictures below show the mapping process...  look VERY carefully for the green arrow...

So there you have it.  I count four invisible barrier corners, four outer barrier corners, and eight water corners. All of the corners appear to be in line with each other. My approximate guess for the size of the map, from outer corner to outer corner is 8 to 9Km.

General "thanks" to xbill (specifically for this trick discussion) and the HBO forum for info on the barrier shape.
