Wow - that's amazing.  One feature request from a hilly, but not mountainous
part of the world - can you include an option to exaggerate the relief?  On
the wall at work is a physical relief map of Oxford in plastic made by the
Ordnance Survey in the 1970s. I recall from the small print that the scale
of the vertical axis is three times that of the horizontal plane - and that
gives a map where the hills look like they feel as I cycle up them!
