Discussion[edit]

These seem very good, although I don't actually know what the old ones were like. The only problem I can see is that they blend in with the (Cologne?) theme - the white is similar to the background and the parts of Australia not highlighted are almost exactly the same. --uvarov 08:19, Oct 4, 2004 (UTC)

The old ones weren't much different, just a different colour. Check the Tassie one here [1]. I chose yellow as I plan to use the maps for other things (ie. highways, towns, rivers, mountains, etc. ) and use different colours for each, and pale yellow was the best colour for drawing additional items - the red was too dark to see any other colour. -- Chuq 10:57, 4 Oct 2004 (UTC)
On viewing the maps on another machine, I've found they look quite pale. Anyone else found this or just me? -- Chuq 23:02, 4 Oct 2004 (UTC)
I am just about to post you a notice about worldwind images but came here first - these maps do look pale on my machine. Regards --AYArktos 21:59, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)
