ThinkGeo's Map Suite World Map Kit Beta is out now
Posted 30 September 2008 - 11:59 AM
The World Map Kit includes a complete dataset of the world, featuring street-level detail throughout the United States and Canada, plus major road detail elsewhere. In addition, the pre-built rendering classes take all the hard work out of designing beautiful maps. Visual details, iconography and zoom levels have all been meticulously designed for you. All you have to do is add a few lines of code to your Map Suite application, and you're ready to go.
You can experiment with a Web application that uses the World Map Kit online here:

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality. Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach. That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me? I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.” Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and that stubborn fog clouding my vision with nothing but darkness."

But the viewer seems to work fine.

I don't know what dataset you used for the built-up areas and their names, but it's woefully incorrect. Misspelled names, the wrong names, industrial areas the same style as cities, missing parts (how old is the data?)
Zooming in on some areas in the US that I'm familiar with I see the same thing basically.
I'm sorry, the software side of that demo works okay, but the data is not something I'd want to show to my clients.

Also there is some mess with the hydro in North Africa - you show some salines as lakes while there is only/mostly salt lef
