Default Critique My Cover Designs

I've designed a visitors guide and am working on a fold-out map. I'm happy with the guide cover but am not sure how to approach the map. I was thinking both should share some elements to tie together (the old versions do this also). I had a slight variation of the guide cover for the map, but then I made a totally new one. I like this new idea, but it doesn't feel complete as-is. Left-hand is the visitors guide; right-hand is the map.

In case they don't show:
Guide Cover
Map Cover

Maps of Manchester, Delaware County, and the Lake Delhi Area are all included on the fold-out map sheet, hence their typographic inclusion. I like the personality this offers. My biggest frustration is that the aerial photo is used the same way in both covers, but it's very practical for both. The map cover is also less intricate and full compared to the guide. It feels somewhat incomplete.
