Gonna be in Vegas in less then a week, Decided to click on the maps link above just the check out the Wiz's maps.
Wow, pretty out of date, needs an upgrade, no D, still Fitz. No downtown Grand, Bills still on map, Imperial Palace instead of Quad. Terribles still Terribles, ect.
A lot of Vegas info remains the same but never the maps :-)

I created those maps.

It's on my to-do list to update them but I've had other projects get in the way.

As it happens, the other stuff has cleared up, so I'll get to it this week.

I really like those maps. It's much easier to locate a casino on them vs. Google or Yahoo Maps.

Here's a link to my favorite Vegas Map. Still a bit outdated but you can see the size of the casino property.

If you click on the downtown map, that pretty updated with the Grand and Container park.


I think Google maps totally rocks.
For instance, thinking about checking out Pinball hall of fame on my upcoming trip.
I checked google maps to see how far from strip, yup, too far to walk, will have to cab it or go by bus.
Then I checked street view, now I know exactly what the building and front look like.

I'm working on this today. In addition to these changes, Gold Spike is no more. Plaza, Stratosphere and GVR have changed their logos. And I have to fix Carson Ave and correctly spell Bridger Ave Downtown.

Are there any other changes, fixes or additions that I'm forgetting?


I'm tempted to add the Neon Museum. Ultimately that would be Mike's decision, but I figure if the Fashion Show mall can be on the Strip Map (which I added at Mike's request), the Neon Museum should be on Downtown's map. It may not be "iconic" on it's own, but the items in the boneyard certainly are, and I think that qualifies it. Thoughts?

That's a pretty cool map, thanks man. Hopefully they will keep it updated.

OK. I've made my first revisions.



Changes: The D, Downtown Grand, Neon Museum, Plaza logo, deleted Gold Spike, fixed roads.)



Changes: Quad, Silver Sevens, Stratosphere logo. Crossed off Bills. I tilted Tropicana and Hooters so Hooters would be closer to it's actual location. I modified the gauge and wording to better reflect the scale.


Changed the logos for GVR and Aliante.

At first glance, these look fantastic. Thank you!

Please tell me I won't pick up a computer virus if I click on that link.

I think they're fantastic as well. Can I suggest any kind of darkening of "Palazzo" though? Even on the Jpeg, it's so light I can only see the P, and the web version could barely see even that. I know it's a crowded area of the map, though. Nice job, Dave!
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
