    I love 3d. Although, it looks like you rendered this in a top down orthographical view. Try a top down perspective view to give it some depth. The shadows betray a little of the 3d, but the lack of perspective hurts that feeling a little.

    I agree.
    I tried a top-down perspective first, like this ...

    But the 'perspective' didn't really show up too well and made adding the weighted lines much harder.
    I also thought about displaying it as a real two-point perspective, like this ...

    but I had trouble imagining the map where that would work.
    Thanks for the feedback.

    from someone who can see colors?
    (I was once told that the color I had selected for a presentation "makes my eyes bleed" ).

    So, which looks better?

    I like the color, but think it is a little pale. Just making it 33% darker seems to make it stand out better.

    I actually really liked the look of the top down 3d perspective view. Much more convincing. Also agree on the make it darker approach.
