This map just blew me away! I was scanning for anything bad and just couldn't find any! The only thing I have to say is that on some of the smaller fonts, it is a bit hard to read, but it may be because I don't have my glasses on? Haha.
The color scale (Since I see it's not in there) that I think would suit this is Green-Brown-Red or Green-Red on the elevation levels.
I won't comment on the fact that it isn't colored though, because I read through the comments and I realized that you did know to color it but not how to contour.
I don't believe you really need to contour much (But I'm terrible myself so how would I know?) I suggest looking at actual maps. If I were you, I would go and buy a map (If you can) to see exactly how they do things and how they color the elevations. (For me, I have to physically touch it)
Hope I helped you with this review in any way and hope I gave a good review.
Thanks for the comments
I made this map to print out, and it is actually hanging in my room at about a0 size! At this level, the words aren't too small. But I do know what you're saying, on a computer screen, they are quite hard to read.
When I do revisit this map, I will do my best to add colour to it. I'll probably try and make the contours more fine and have a gentle progression from green-brown-white (snow) as the mountains rose.
Thinking about it actually, I can think of quite an easy way to do it now I have a new program. Who knows, your review might have just sparked my imagination again!
Haha, I see what you mean, when it's printed out, it's probably a lot better. I like your idea of coloring that way, I think it'll look nice, and go along with the whole theme smoothly. I'd be honored if I have helped any.
You're welcome! C=
