"Keep
the layout simple with quality images. The viewer gets the initial
scope and can plan a possible itinerary for the area, combined with the
added bonus of downloading a print version for the trip.

A map & picture in the hand, is worth a GPS in the bush!

Check out this ‘New in Stavanger’ for first time travellers to Norway:

Keep the faith!

Hi,

From
a quick look - the actual maps looks very nice (esp the city maps), but
I am not too excited about the lines and arrows, and especially that
dark purpleish color for the very broad frame, it distracts and takes
the attention away from the map.

Hi Hugo,

Agree with you!

Would love to have a freehand with the profile, but unfortunately for me, the client
uses that ""dark purplish"" yuck as their graphic profile.

So, sorry about that, my hands are tied!

Thanks anyway for the positive comments about the city map,
always appreciated from a poor waif of a cartographer!

Keep up the good work!
