    Not really much new, just a couple more buildings, and the folds.

    if you go through the member introductions we had a guy that posted a map there a couple of months ago - a map of a indian city I believe - that map was packed with information, maybe you could draw some inspiration from that for more stuff to put in?

    yep... so now you hopefully have some more ideas
    One thing I would add to the map would be a border. Either a simple one, or an advertisement filled one

    Ok, I needed a little more room, and there were just to many good suggestions in here, so I half started over. Here's what I've got so far, more room for ads, more room for text, more room for whatever. It needs even more buildings now, and I'll have to redo the roads, but I think I like the layout better. Obviously the ads are just a cut/paste mock-up for now. The only thing I like less is the positioning of the statue, but I think I can work it out. Any suggestions?

    youi got a lot of ads ahead of you, but what fun to make up all those places
    You need some space for a map key - I suggest you remove the middle bottom ads to make room for that

    Just a quick update. Added some roads, some buildings, some labels, some ads. Still needs lots more detail. Any advice about labeling or layout would be appreciated. It also seems a little jagged to me. It's all vectors so I tried playing with the dpi, but that didn't really seem to help.

    looks good - of course as you know, vector don't "jag", but when you convert to bitmap some lines can look jagged as its now pixelgraphics instead - but everything looks fine to me

    More buildings, more ads, more streets, and some minor changes.
