The map is a bit unbalanced, it appears really full on the left side and totally empty on the right side (neutral space above the legend).
Definitely with tnb80 on these rearranging the legend items to use all the space is a solution, as well as perhaps going to a minimap. Also can try narrowing the map to eliminate the negative spaces. Or of course trying various combinations of some or all of these.
Less bold on the title, blend it into the map itself. Could also look into a similar looking font if that is the issue with it being so bold. There are usually ways around it though.
I agree about the trees, ask your consultants about area specific trees, considering the area, I'd guess that a type of conifer would be much more in line with the region, rather then the mushroom shaped trees currently there.
The grid isn't good. It's on TOP of the map when it should be a part of the map. It's like looking through a tan fence at the map. :/ It probably just needs to be dropped down in the layer list, or set on a different blending option.
I've circled some areas of concern above:
Red: most of these are just areas of colors bleeding under borders, there are a couple that are specific with borders though.
The river's border is a lil pixely and has some bleed of the river's color onto the land. I circled the river in yellow to in the legend cuz there is 2 oddly parallel erasures in the river's border which is also present in the river circled in red.. Not that it necessarily matters, I really think you're going to have to redraw the river border anyways.
The 3 red circles in E Latvia and SE Latvia have issues with the borders that are a little different. Between Ogre and Aizkrakukle there is a stretch where its lighter than the rest of the border. In Madona there is an odd dot there on the border. And between Ludza and Rezekne the border is darker and pixelly.
Green: These borders are incomplete. there is also a spot of border under the mountains in Rezekne that should be erased. Also here the mountains should be nudged over or another mountain added to prevent confusion that Rezekne and Bavli could be connected. The circle in the nonplayable area the border looks oddly doubled with a gap there too.
Yellow: Legend goofs, I already mentioned the river, but the other circle there has an odd spot there l=that looks like it's a part of the layer that the mountains are on.
