Designer Notes:

NCompass comes with 3 sample maps.
They are meant too give you an idea of the capabilities of NCompass.

1. Color United States Map
- Shows you the painted backdrop capabilities of NCompass.
Does not contain any roads and only the states
for databases, but you are free to add your own.
- This is a scratch made map. Not a 3CS Ready-Made map.
2. Michigan Map
- The Michigan map is not a complete 3CS Ready-Made,
although it does contain some actual data.
- Contains cities, counties (political boundry) and
some lakes.
*note* Many cities (in the cites database) are listed more
than once. The database actually zip code centroids.
Cities with more than one zip code are listed multiple
3. Grand Rapids (MI)
- Grand Rapids is an actual 3CS Ready-Made map.
- This map really shows off the power of NCompass. The
Grand Rapids map contains all roads, streets
and highways. Click on any intersection, and NCompass
will tell you the street names. Also given are hospitals,
city parks and a few points of interest.
