Gday CartoTalk mates,

 

I'd like to ask your opinion about this bushwalking map.

http://mapstart.com.au/dandenong.html

And suggestions if you have.

It's an experimental version of the published paper map.

I have created with Ocad for Cartography v11.

Thank you.

 

Cheers,

 

Andras Bogdanovits

Looks nice, but I'm a bit confused about the clickability.

 

If you zoom in to Olinda for example there's markers for hotels and restaurants. But the markers aren't clickable. The centerpoints of the labels are, and then just the centerpoints. It would be more logical to have the markers themselves clickable, but as far as I can tell there's no additional information (yet?) so the point of having them clickable is a bit moot.

 

The centerpoints that are clickable are visible too, which I'm not a fan of.

It's true. I'll try to make the markers clickable and adding more info to labels. Thanks for your feedback.
