@iant I think it does; it seems like there is no one correct answer.

comment How to mix polygon extrusion and different altitude modes in KML?
Can you sample based on the specific case? Mountains=detailed sampling; flat-lands = less detailed

comment Are there any convenient sources of color palettes to use in ArcGIS software while producing maps?
I would be interested to know if there is a way of directly installing colorBrewer in ArcGIS 10. I emailed the previous developers (gis.cancer.gov/tools/colortool) and received the response: "The current installer does not fully succeed in ArcMap 10 environments, however you can manually add the "ColorToolPro9_2.0.tlb" from the installation location (usually c:\program files\NCI GIS Tools\colortool) to add the command to a toolbar. " Which I suppose is a satisfactory workaround.

True - I realized that as I wrote the question, but was not aware of that approach (which is brilliant!). I'll edit my answer to incorporate that.

just added it. I think it would help if you had some annotations showing your criteria (in particular scale - I did not realize it was this small on first reading it). I know you describe it in detail, but graphics help. And you'll probably need such a diagram for your thesis anyway.
