Routes and Areas (lines and polygons) Model Map

Lines and Areas (test)

With this new capability of adding lines and areas to Open Green Maps, we are excited to present these new options! This chart is in development.
What do you think? Do the lines and areas match the icons? Is each type easy to differentiate? What's missing?
Your feedback is welcome!
