Yeah... in the middle for sure. And a couple territories now have NO border all the bridges in Christiantown and the 2 bridges coming from the Citadel. The borders and outlines are looking a tad pixelly too.

How are the roads in Copenhagen? Are they angly like you have drawn or are then curvy/swurvy?

The color you have added for the minor bridges is on top of the background image so it oddly cuts off detail from the underneath image. Integrate those color layers into the other layers so the opacity allows for the back image come through everywhere.

They are mainly strait and angly, but not like in the states where all roads are in equal rectangles ;) its more randomly.

Did you just scale the small map? It just seems a shade blurry to me.

I'm wondering if it might be best to switch out the color for Christanshavn for something else. The red of the flag is really blending together with it.

"Sights" in the legend should be "Sites" and the water is impassible too, yes? Should be mentioned in the legend with the roads.

What exactly are blurry ? I diden just scale it down, I redrawn/typed every thing.

I dont see it "really blending" but its no problem finding another color.

Sites seem to more correct. water is impassable yes, but I dont think its necessary as I think it seems obvious.

Assumption is the mother of all screw ups... just because you assume its obvious, doesn't mean everyone else will.

It may just be the smaller text being a shade pixelly that gives that allusion. It may be better bolded, at least on the small map.

The flagpole is kinda interfering with the Christiania territory name as well.

Changes: colors for Christianshavn, Christiania flag moved, legend now says: roads and water is impasable. Text on small map are "sharp"

Sites seem to more correct.

the map title is copenhagen sightseeing, so it's sights, meaning things that tourists go to see.

some of the names sound a bit strange when translated to english. perhaps use the danish names for north harbor (nordhavn) and yacht harbor (i don't know this one, as my danish isn't good enough)? http://www.visitcopenhagen.com refers to assistens cemetery instead of assistant cemetery.

http://www.visitcopenhagen.com/media/me ... s/norrebro

a capital S is needed for Natural Science Institute and a capital Q for Langelinie Quay.

with so many cemeteries, the map is unnecessarily depressing! i suggest replacing our saviour's cemetery by our saviour's church, whose distinctive spiral tower is visible from christiania.
