Size of Map[]

I think the map image is critically important to the article, and shouldn't be thumbnail size, or on the right margin. I had it set as 1000px height (on the left margin), which I thought was a reasonable size. If no-one objects I'll change it back to a left-margin image with a similar size to the original.

It makes the article appear unstructured and odd. If a user wants to see it, they can click on it to see it larger. – Smashman (talk) 15:21, 1 February 2011 (PST)
I agree that it is non-standard formatting for a wiki article, however I believe that a small thumbnail is insufficient to display the map given the context of this article. Right-margin thumbnails are typically used for elaboration/support in articles with moderate amounts of text. This article is very light on text, making the map itself a very important content piece. I therefore think the map should stand as a relatively large image, on the left margin. Some additional syntax could make it blend better than it did originally, coupled with a small size reduction.
