I've been visiting Map Gallery section of CartoTalk forum from time to time.
I found it very useful to post an example of my (amateur) cartographic output and get some feedback and comments on them. And I also learn a lot from other posts.
Do you think GIS SE could serve a similar role where question would be basically a map produced by the user asking for critical comments on design/cartographic aspects of it? Both good and bad sides? What would be an appropriate tag(s) for that?
UPDATE (following @whuber comment): I do not envisage this type of questions to be in the form - 'Hey.. here is my map.. whataya think?' Question would probably have to present some more challenging / unusual type of visualization / cartographic output (I realize the fact that it might be highly subjective issue though). And asks about issues like:
- Are there any particular mistakes that I haven't thought about (choice of colors, fonts, legibility, composition, missing elements in legend, etc.)?
- Is this type of visualization adequate?
- If not what other options would be more appropriate?
- Have I chosen appropriate technique considering my (envisaged) audience?
