We would also like to thank Tony Yau for the picture of his recent visit to the Ginza district in Tokyo which is placed on this sample map.  The actual composit of extracts shown on the above sample was done by Neal Chan - however if you want to see the amazing detail possible on a PDF map - you'll have to contact Angus.
