I am something of a map collector and I love maps. They are useful tools and works of art at the same time. I was disappointed by this Florida atlas for number of quite small reasons which added up to quite a big issue. I thought the scale was too large for such a big area. I am used to maps of the whole of Great Britain being at 1:250,000 (see Great Britain Road Atlas (large format) (A-Z Road Atlas)
) and being completely clear, yet this atlas was at 1:150,000 but covered a much larger square mileage and somehow was less clear, although I am prepared to accept that this may have been due, in part, to what I am used to reading. Another point is that despite containing a wealth of textual information, there is only one type of map - there are no higher scale city maps or airport plans of say, Orlando, Maiami, Tampa etc. Furthermore, given the importance attached, on the road, to mile markers especially on the Florida Keys, there are no mile markers on the maps or indeed toll points. Better use of more colours would help and page overlap would make the map easier to follow.
I am surprised that in a country so rich in the culture of road travel, there are not better maps available. I have checked out Rand McNally (having also bought their excellent Florida sheet map) but their state atlas doesn't get a great review - lack of page overlap there also annoyed the reviewer.
