Of course, being published in 2007, it is already outdated in some place names and access advice. Also, I found the use of “go-to points”, scattered GPS landmarks whose coordinates appear in an appendix, unnecessary and distracting. Maybe I’m a dinosaur, but I prefer to navigate with visual cues rather than GPS, and there is already more than enough detail in the charts to allow this. What I value more as a visitor is having detailed information on free public put-in sites. It would be nice to have this detailed more clearly on each map. Maybe I’m also a dinosaur who’s colour-blind, but I couldn’t distinguish the colours of the two types of launch site symbols. Lastly, it would be clearer to have a little overlap between the maps or at least refer to adjacent maps by page number rather than having arrows pointing to landmarks which are off the page. None of these are serious faults, just suggestions for a welcome future edition.
