              WorldMap v. 2                                            WorldMap v. 4                                WorldWide Basemap
Mexico's Copper Canyon
WorldMap v.4 appears to be the same as v.2 except it has contour intervals of 1,000 feet.
The Magellan map has contour intervals of 250 feet.

The Panama Canal
Strangely, the canal shown in v.2 is missing in v.4, but peaks are displayed.

Costa Rica - Poas Volcano Area
The Magellan map has more contours, but much fewer and less accurate roads.
