    Don't know about all that science stuff, but I think it look gorgeous. Love the colours.

    All the geodesy stuff jbgibson and I said boils down to: the grid should be tall rectangles (Roughly 1:2) rather than squares (or rather that that would be fairly close to correct, if still not exactly right). In fact, since it is so close to 1:2, a simple relabelling would work reasonably well.

    And I do agree the colours are quite good. The relief shading looks a bit odd in places, most likely a result of an artificial DEM, but that's fairly common with fictional maps as realistic artificial DEMs are hard.

    @jbgibson and Hai-Etlik

    Valid points, all. Stuff to consider for next map? Sure.

    Will there be more maps like this? Well, yes, of course, as soon as I finish my education, get a job, settle down and get some more dang free time!

    Your use of colored elevations is very well done. And continuing it into the sea works naturally. I've never used a legend myself but I can see from looking at yours just how useful and readable they can be.
