Is it going to improve? Looks like it would be great if "mouse-over" worked on it.

Or at least include, you know, the names of the casinos :)

For anyone looking for a map with casino names, I recommend Cheapo Vegas (google it). Their site has a map that is basically just text--it's not aesthetically pleasing per se. But you can click on each of the casinos and you will see a review and a link to the casino's website. Very useful in planning a Vegas trip and getting familiar with the relative locations of the casinos.

Their reviews are not as comprehensive or as useful as the ones on this site, but it is another resource for planning your trip.
The ratio of people to cake is too big.

the names of the casinos

Casino names and perhaps names of major destinations that are within casinos such as clubs or notable watering holes.

Larger icons if possible, large text ... and just make the "off-strip" casinos indicated by some symbol that shows the intervening distance has been truncated.

As pretty as the 'map' may be in all its three-dimensionality, it's almost useless as an actual map.

The map will get better, I promise. There were a few people between me and the guy who did it, so I don't think he realized the reason I needed it. The end product will be something like what I have now, but with a key.

For serious mapping needs I use the maps from Visit Vegas. They allow for looking up shopping, casinos, attractions, etc. and also eventually link to the official websites (when they exist).

My wife has a degree in Geography and has taken a few mapping courses along the way. She suggests you add a North arrow, major street names, a key, and notes maps should never ever

Now you tell me.
