Hello everyone,

 

Just finished the hiking trails map for Harghita Mountains, Romania.

The first one was already put for display in one of the mountain shelters.

 

Pictures here:

The map can be downloaded in its full extent in watermarked Png format from here:

Please let me know what you think, any comments are welcomed.

Very nicely designed legible topographic map.

 

Two suggestions:

Scale bar seems somewhat lost (hard to find) on the map.

Did not find the linear symbology for numbered trails in the legend.

Thank you Jacques,

 

The scale bar got lost because initially I planned to put it somewhere where the legends are, yet on the day before printing we had to add 3 new trails based on the last fieldwork (8A, 46,47) on the map and in trail legend, which left me with no space for the bar...I tried to highlight it with a transparent white box in its current place, yet it looked a bit strange (on the actual display its a bit clearer, as the top corner is pretty much close to eye level, around 1.7-1.8m).

The numbered trails refer to the trail legend section only where the brief description about the trails appear, yet I could have add the trail line symbols as well, will keep that in mind for further release, thanks for the suggestions,
