This map folds nicely and is laminated, which gives it some water-proofing. It has a section with just the subway lines, as well as an enlarged view of a Pudong and Central Shanghai. The general map covers almost all of The Inner Ring but not much past that, and some parts of the Inner Ring are cut off. Subway lines, Parks, Universities, Major Sights to See, Large hotels, etc. are highlighted.
I was disappointed that the map was only in English. My old map had English, Pinyin and Chinese characters, which was really helpful. The English names on this map aren't necessarily Pinyin so when it says "Tibet Road" it's the English version of the street, not the Pinyin "Xizang Lu". In other instances, when there is no English name for the street, the Pinyin is provided. My biggest disappointment is that when it did list street names in Pinyin, they are often misspelled. This is particularly aggravating as it is the inverse of Chinglish and equally inexcusable (proofreading anyone?). I know this is probably an understandable mistake, but there were a surprising number of misspellings (more so than in other more detailed maps I've had). So even with the Pinyin, it's hard to ask someone for directions or find the street. The Streetwise Shanghai logo also takes up a portion of the map that is annoying - but maybe that's more bc I personally feel the space could better used to show more of the areas surrounding the Inner Ring Road (past Gubei Road to the West and Zhongshan Road to the North) than a large logo.
If Periplus Travel Maps came out with an updated version, I would buy that map bc although it isn't nicely laminated, hardy or compact as this one - there are less misspellings and street names are in English, Pinyin and Chinese characters. Also more of the smaller streets are shown.
I would still recommend this map to people as it's the most updated map that I could find online. And I figure people probably aren't as anal as I am about maps. Personally, I still end up carrying both this map and my old Periplus map.
The only weakness we noted for our Shanghai map was that it was slightly outdated. This city is growing and changing at a stunning rate and so even a 2009 map is outdated for 2010!
