Perhaps make your army shadows a touch more visible. They pratically disappear in some areas, specifically in Marin.

Can we get a smooth path for the Emeryville->Alcatraz ferry route? It is a little 'elbowy'.

Awesome job Johloh!

So happy that someone has made a map of the bay, and that it does the bay area justice.


Let's play!

The route from Alameda to China Basin is a very smoooth curve, while the route from Emeryville to Alcatraz goes kinda straight for a ways, then turns kinda suddenly... like an elbow. I thought it was pretty clear?

Did you make all of the shadows less transparent? I think Keyogi just meant the faint ones. Now some of them seem to bright/white. Between the two I prefer the first more subtle version (the army numbers are pretty obvious either way I think).

On the first version these shadows looked faint to me: Corte Madera, El Cerrito, San Pablo, Tiberon, Sausalito; and to a lesser extent: Inner Sunset, McLaren Park, Bernal heights and Candlestick. Actually, all of the east bay shadows seem a bit fainter than all the SFs; maybe I've looked at it to long now; must rest my eyes!

yeah

all the shadows are the same...they just 'appear' to be fainter in spots because of the city underneath being different colors...id rather not go in and change each individually...

i can go either way...

Now, it may just be my eyes, but some of the coordinates appear to be higher than others. It's quite hard to determine because of the army shadows, but for an example Inner Sunset compared to Glen Park and Ingleside. I'll have a more detailed look at the map and coordinates later.

As Keyogi pointed out, a few XML tweaks to be done. This map is looking pretty nice! Whenever possible, lets see the latest versions of the large and small, and two more with the xml centered after the fixes.

Actually, I think you are dune when the moderators are satisfied with the centering. It is usually the last thing they bug you about.

yeah johloh

There haven't been any other suggestions so unless they find more xml issues, I would assume that's it.

It's looking nice! I'll give it a real look over soon. The only thing I'd consider altering would be perhaps make 'no escape from alactraz' somehow more noticeable, either with slight boldness or color, but that is just a minor thing. And it may just ruin the flow of the legend.
