Excellent map! I especially like the depiction of native plants, animals, and peoples...the scale bar kicks butt too.
Its good to see that there are people with means that appreciate the history and art of cartography...paper maps forever!!
Where is the map, i can't see any map in the url..i am curious to see it, can you please let me know?
