To Paul H ...
Q: Is there a legend? ...
R: No not on the map. There will be an online legend available early September when the map is published.
Why: The map is intended to be a decorative reference wall map. When designing it I wanted a 'continuous' look of the area. I also had numerous non cartographic literate people (friends and family) review the map. I was surprise that very few asked that question. I also think that a well designed general purpose map should have a limited use for a legend. (not to say that I still have a lot to learn in that regards).
R: I change to slide show to start off in the pause. (Still not sure why you can't see the pause button as I also use Firefox) But hey it worked.
Q: I guessing the shades of green are for different vegetation
A: Yes, dark for evergreens, medium green for mixed forest and the lighter for 'trees whit leaves'
Q: What are the different shades of blue?
A: Here maybe a legend would help... I think lakes are obvious (anyway I hope) however maybe a legend would help with the marshes and flooded lands.
Q: I agree with the Claude and the elevations, however, if you just dropped them in the visual hierarchy they would almost disappear on their own yet still be there.
R: Good point, however because there is a darker hue to represent the area within the park area, it was a bit of nightmare to come up with a balanced look on the PRINTED copy. But I will consider your comments on that issue.
C: On the escarpment slide, is the grey bare rock? If so well done cause that what it looks like to me.
R: Thanks no need for a legend on that one
C: The sailboat looking icons which I believe are actually a canoe and a tent to represent canoe camping locations. I feel these could be executed a little better. It is hard to tell where the camp spots are located. For example # 6 & 7 are they on the north or south side of the peninsula?
R: Thanks for the comment, I will try to improve.
