    Y'Know that just made me think, Who are the Map gods? The greats of the past and Present? Are there any really big names in cartography nowadays? I must do research!!!

    Anyways, I now see the Compass, It's a fine compass to be sure, but unless it has North pointed out on it instead of being left blank, then one does not know which arrow points to North and all it's useful for is decoration, but a Fine and Glorious Map otherwise.

    See http://www.reliefshading.com/ and http://www.shadedrelief.com/ for a starting point for one style. Each style has its own proponents and most of the styles in use today have been around for a loooong time.
