It is beautiful... I think you've managed to capture the riot of bright colours that one associates with Iberia.

koontz, what program do you use for your xml text editing...i am having a little difficulty with my notetab pro as it won't allow Czech cyrillic characters...so i need to find a better one, one that is hopefully free and has line numbers.

I don't know what koontz uses, but I use Notepad++, which is also free. :)

Yep, I just use good old fashioned notepad. Not one with a + or advanced version, just the bog standard one that came with the computer around 10 years ago. Maybe I should ask Santa for a new computer.

koontz...kerning much better :)
you'll prob wanna kill me for this though...
small map...norte, Oeste, and nordeste territory names appear to have lost brilliance....maybe my tired eyes...but are they blurring into drop shadow....don't have the same brilliance/legibility as the legend colours even though the legend is larger font. :? sorry.
large map...the Oeste almost seems red as opposed to the vibrant orange of the territory names....are these the same colours...or just a trick because of larger font size?

Will have a look but I am inclined to think it is your eyes. The colours have not been touched at all for the territ names since last time. But I will go and have a look today for you. It could also be image shack buggering up the upload again. That seems to happen sometimes to me.

hello koontz1973

you are doing a great work :D

i realize now about the map, i think if you want a perfect map about Madrid, you should think to change some names that are wrong in the map:

Convento Rodriguez ( Francos Rodriguez zone) i think it is not very known for people, maybe you can consider change this zone to Ciudad Universitaria ( the bigger Univertisy of Spain).

Glorieta de Sandro Pertini ( really i lived a lot of years in Madrid and i never heard about that) why not Aeropuerto de Barajas? ( barajas airport, it is the 4th european airport.

Mézquita de Omar --nobody use this name, all people known this place like : Mézquita de la M-30

Plaza de toros--you are right but there are more than one in madrid, but the important is : Las Ventas is the right name for this zone

Pozuelo de Alarcón-- it is not in madrid city, it is another city close to Madrid,but it is ok.

Lázaro Galdiano (Lázaro Galdeano is correct ) i think this zone is not very known for people, why not Santiago Bernabeu?

Imagen Curiosa ( what is this? curious image? i don´t understand this,, this zone is known like Avenida de America

Torres desde cocheras --really this is a very ugly name, towers since garages? why not las torres de madrid ( madrid towers)

Surbatan ( Sur batan) i think only Batan is correct, it is not necesary sur

Ventilla -- really it is not the best district of Madrid and it is not placed there, right there is one of the most richest disctrict of madrid named : La Moraleja

Parque Agustin Rodriguez-- i think this place is better known like Fuencarral

Becquer-- i think this don´t say nothing, maybe Gustavo Adolfo Becquer but it is too long, this zone is famous by the Cementerio de la Almudena ( Almudena graveyard) La Almudena is right.

Los Sacramentin-- i never heard this zone,really i think is worst write, i think the zone known by all people and one the most popular zone in madrid is : Vallekas.

Santa Cristina it is not a known place too, why not Estadio Vicente Calderon ( Atletico de Madrid Stadium) or San Isidro ( the Saint of madrid, there is placed the zone where people celebrate the feast day, it is the most tipical of madrid)

San Miguel Arcangel --- i never heard this too, this zone could be Usera or Carabanchel, a very well known zones of madrid


Well i hope this help you to improve the map ;-)

greetings
