Hi Kalai - viewers would benefit from a legend as geological maps tend to have mapping standards (depending on your country's geological survey) relating to rock type - i.e. plutonic rocks are generally pinkish, etc. The objective of these standards is to provide visual context and a common understanding as to how the user interprets the colours. Meanwhile, your map will improve dramatically by simply changing the green polygonal outlines to black.
Cheers,

Hello,

The outlines can be without colors or with a simple black line, but very fine.

Perhaps some informations like altitude (line of same altitude) and the scale.
At the end, a legend with all geological level from the older at the bottom to the newest at the top.

Good luck !

Yeah, I agree with the earlier comments.

adding:

A title
Inset Map
Legend
Softer colors
Thinner Border lines

...would do wonders for this map.

Thanks for the feedback..Yes i agree with your feedback, its a thematic map, it has more than 3 different layers on the map, the colors can be soften but it is being intrepreted based on the requirement,The green lines are geological contacts represented as a separate layer. A Title,legend and Scale allready exist, but i haven't shown them..Will publish the updated one soon..
