Hi CartoTalk members,

I wanted to share my cartography related site at http://www.Shaded-Relief.com that features a world relief map based on the Google maps API. We are listed in Wikipedia and DMOZ as an authority map site. I'm here to not gain new visitors and also to ask you of your individual opinions. If you see any easily added features or have suggestions please fire away here or by private PM or email. Please be candid but constructive. I appreciate you time!

Looks nice, but I think the overall results could have been better if you had generated relief data for every zoom level. Right now it looks like the highest (most detailed) zoom was the master and all others are scaled down versions of that (rather than completely new renders).

Also, I'm not too keen on making everything over 1500 meters white. It kinda implies large swathes of Africa are covered in snow :rolleyes:

I tried to zoom in on Alaska and the relief disappeared showing only roads and towns.
