Hey guys, I am a new member. I made this a few years back in my first cartography class. I am about to start my final one here in a few weeks. I loved this map and still do, but looking back I could have given then title and paragraph more thought. Just thought I would post it up, like I said, it's old so I won't change it, but I would love to hear what I could have done and learn something for future reference!

I think it looks quite good, interesting and eye-catching (in a good way). I would probably have left off the "equator" label on the graticule (I understand the graticule lines help convey that this is a map of the world).

It looks really good, yet if I may, I would like to add a small observation: from what I can see on the map, between Hungary and Ukraine its a small dot, I assume its the Republic of Moldova (I really can't tell from the size of the dot) based on the medal counts, if this is the case, Romania was left out, if my calculation is correct, with a total number of 292 medals(gold, silver, bronze).
Other than that, its a very cool and original approach.

Nice map,

From a reader's perspective I would consider the following,

I don't know what countries some 3 letter ISO code represent. So a full listing would IMO add value.
To that listing I would add the actual medal count.
