Golan isn't actually shown on this map. I think that label might be wrong.

Well, the actual occupied Golan Heights area is much bigger but the territory labelled Golan, I'm pretty sure, is at least a little bit in that occupied area.

maybe I will just change the map name to "Israel & Disputed Territories" LOL! But I will try to clarify on the map that some of the territories are disputed, especially in Gaza. I think Golan is accurate in the placement that I have it in, maybe the borders are not exact but that is a part of Israel and there's nothing else all the way up there in the Northeast part of the country.

I think you should redraw the map in a larger size. It's always better to create the large image first, and your current map is too tight for a large map...

Also, the shape of the map isn't very convenient, people don't like scrolling. Maybe you could rotate the map a bit to give it a more square aspect?

This is where Golan is:

What you call Golan is the Hula Valley. Or since you are using cities for your labels, Qiryat Shmona.

Made the updates that was suggested in the posts.

I agree that members usually don't like scrolling up and down to see the whole map, but I really don't know how to make it more square. I also got rid of the circle around the army troop count, but I'm actually thinking about putting them back in with a white background because some of the colors don't match well with the background colors I have on the map.

I tried rotating the map but it just didn't look right to me. So instead, I decided just to widen it. What do you think of this? Maybe I should possibly even widen it more?

Personally I think rotating it would be better, as it would reduce the scrolling. I have to scroll the current image and I don't even have a widescreen...

After rotating you'll have to re-trace the map and redraw the graphics, but that's something you're going to have to do anyway.

At the current size of the image, you would have to get it supersized, which it wouldnt pass the supersize standards, so the size would have to get changed... I could help if you want? i could do the graphics and you could do the XML?

cheers.

I have been pm'ing with crazymilkshake5 - I just want to make it clear that he's going to play a significant role in the map-making process. So between the two of us, the map is going to be created.

Milkshake, did you become a CA when I wasn't looking?

You have no business telling mapmakers that their map "won't pass supersize". That's up to the CA:s to decide.

Well sorry natty, god.

They would just say that it can fit within the normal map size, I'v been here long enough to know at least that much.
