A. this map gives it a more toned down look that is not bad. i personally thought this was a good map till i saw the maple leafs as mountains. the addition of the coin and beaver does not quite fit with the map, even though the maker might have thought adding symbolic symbols of canada would help give it an authentic look. but the solution of the lake to solve the 4 way border is genius!!!
B. this map is one of my favs as it also stays to the original design, while giving it a more updated look. i quite the thick terr borders, for no apparent reason. my biggest problem with this is the title style and location. not very ideal and it doesnt suit the map well.
C. Too bright. that was my first impression. after my eyes got past the pain, i looked at it more closely and saw that the Thompson title is obscuring the 4 way border, which does not really solve the problem, but merely hiding it. i thought the elevation addition to the map was kinda confusing and distracting as well the black river lines (at least i think they are river lines). the font is not that great as it makes it hard to read especially with the think outer borders around the names. and i think this maker forgot about the mountain pass between vancouver and calgary.
D. i quite agree with edbeard on the black borders, very nice. im not a fan of his mountains though, and the water route from Victoria to P. George should be clearer, because currently i cant tell if Victoria is connected to P George or P Edward.
E. this gave me a doodle earth feeling which made me laugh
. i thought that addition of some sort of bird thing in the USA gray area was a little strange, adn the mountains do not go well with the rest of the map. they also forgot to add route lines connecting Newfoundland to PEI, PEI to Brunswick, and PEI to Nova Scotia.
, very drastic change, but after i got over my initial shock, i thought it look very well done and great. it may be drastically differetn from the original, but not in a bad way. i cant really see any probs with this, but the entirely different look may not please some.
my favs right now has to be F and B.
ps why does the D map say by marcol? i thought this was anomynous.
