just looked at your page - it looks nice, but what I'm missing is a lot of samples maps so I can see what can be done with it. For instance, all the maps are modern type - can it do anything else? :)

Hi tilt,
thanks for taking a look :) Ortelius has a wide variety of styles to support different map types. You can add images and textures as well. We do have users that are creating maps of a more historical nature, though since it is vector-based software it tends to be well suited for modern maps. Adding a gallery is a great idea - one we'll look into supporting.
