    It's in the explanatory notes (not shown) - just a visual idea of comparative scale.

    Man, this map is awesome! This is some quality, professional work. Repped.

    Very nice Ravs, love the color scheme.

    This is a really lovely map. You certainly deserve good things to come from it.

    Thanks guys, it's a funny thing but when I look at my own stuff, i don't think it holds a candle to the kinds of maps that say, Torstan and Ascension produce (amongst many others). I guess we're always our own worst critics!

    Well, I guess it's a question of styles. I can't put together a map in your style or Ascensions or many others that is half as good as what you have achieved here. I really need to take a shot at these textured maps because the look really lovely. I have to say that your mountains are certainly noteworthy - given the amount of discussion they tend to attract you seemed to have really nailed them here.

    It's a matter of aesthetics (beauty), information (detail), and cleanliness (legibility) that I can never fully achieve. You have got all three working on this one and that's what makes it superb. I tried to rep ya but I gotta spread some around. Hope ya do more like this.

    Don't sell yourself short, I always enjoy seeing what you come up with.
