    Default Beautiful map design

    I'm going through my occasional trawl of the Cartotalk website and looking for interesting links (hence flurry of link posting from me).

    Check out this site - for some really beautiful ways to present maps.

    Hrm, all I get are giant black squares...not all that exciting

    It worked for me the first time (which was like 3 minutes ago) but right now all I see are big black squares.

    Probably some sort of bandwidth thing so I'll check it tomorrow.

    Oops. That was probably thanks to me downloading their entire gallery in order to get the whole maps... They're split up into a few hundred small squares each on the highes zoom level.

    Long live HTTrack.

    The site works fine for me now, though.
