    Thanks for your help. The map with the corrections of Lingon & DZFaeley.

    Hope you'll like it.
    And I think I'm gonna go with those kind of shields on the top of the political map.

    I'm working on the political map right now. I just finished the shields as you can see below.

    I have troubles for labels... Too numerous I fear. Would you lowered the number of cities? What I previous can be seen on the right part of the map : smaller cities are 10,000 inhabitants, and I think I should remove it except for regional capitals OR leave the symbols but with no labels... What do you think?

    And if someone knows a good way to put administrative regions names without interfering with cities names, I would be glad to read it...

    Sea labels look perfect now! The political map is awesome, I really can't say which variant I like better, the political or the main map. Though I think the shields are just a tiny bit to brightly colored. As for the city labels, I would probably have chosen to not show the smallest cities. Leaving the dots but not writing their names could make it look like you forgot to label them

    I agree with Lingon on both points, shields bright colors and smallest cities.

    Play with kerning to avoid overlapping.

    I really like the main map, but the political one is definitely my fave! Really beautiful work, and I think your new shields, with the more muted colours, look perfect now!

    Thanks to both of you!

    I'm struggling with the labels but I hope to post next update of the political map soon.

    Ok, I need help and advices again about those damn labels...

    I suppressed more cities (only region capitals & cities over 100,000) but I have the feeling that it's still "crowded" where the regions are small. And above all, I'm not sure if it's readable at all.

    Should I put just numbers and the regional names in a legend? Change the font? Any advice would be useful I think...
