i love the 1:25.000 and 1:50.000 cards of alpenverein
Not so fast, eh... I NEVER mentioned the AV maps as being unnavigable. I just stated my opinion that AV maps are a wee bit chaotic compared to the newer ones of Swisstopo.
Swisstopo is in my opinion by far superior when it comes up to topo maps of the Alps. Having said that, AV makes good, accurate maps, i am just spoiled when it comes up to topo maps of "civilised" countries. (Read OS, ST, TD, USGS)
Let me post two examples; one from AV 5/1; Karwendelgebirge West
and this one from ST 1198; Silvretta

Aye. In Morocco i would've loved having anything near the quality of AV. Those maps are so shite that i had to go in and make some edits...
Clint, there're Morrocan maps better than that, mine has contour lines
