    1. Study suggests that fewer people interpret a map correctly if it is North-Up, while majority readers find it more comfortable when the maps is Head-Up. This is why all Car GPSs come with head-up map display. I made this map head-up and there is nothing wrong that I should correct. Thank you.

    2. I assume that (head-up maps) is for moving object in car's navigation or mobile navigation maps, not stationary printed or digital maps. Could you please give reference of the "study" you are referring here ? That will be very helpful. Thank You.

    3. That is your assumption, which is not entirely correct, or perhaps not at all. A map can be oriented in whichever direction is suitable, as long as there is a compass or direction indicator present. Moreover, a compass or a 'grammatical north' indicator is not at all necessary on a tourist guide map. And then, even if this map is 'stationery' as you call it, the target users will not be, they will be moving. Most of the tourists approach the island from the North, and sees the south lying ahead. And it would be rude for you to think that we did not do our field work and tourists' survey before this map was finalized, this map is a by-product of exactly 30 years of my field work on this Island (1986-2016).
