This is a great overlay, except for the water bodies (e.g. Caspian Sea, but also lakes, rivers etc). On the maps-for-free website, one can add the 'Water' overlay. Is it possible to introduce it to this KML too? It would contribute greatly.

Hello, this map is great... I have been serching for somthing similar for long time.
And I also hope to see soon the "water bodies" overlay. Is this going to happen?... thanks, Marco

It would be very useful if there was an option to overlay the elevation key.

Did you ever get a method of adding "water/rivers" as an overlay
