Google Project Sunroof

Google's Project Sunroof is a tool that estimates solar potential of buildings by analyzing 3D models of buildings from Google Maps, as well as other factors. I've compiled some feature requests that could improve the service.

With the current color scheme, the highest value data point is also the least visible. Yellow intuitively signifies solar potential, but the light grey background makes yellow very difficult to see.

Here's a mockup of the data with a dark blue background, which makes the data much easier to see. Built with Google's own map style maker, I used the following parameters: roads = 100%, landmarks = 0%, labels = 0%, color = "Aubergine"

If you're aware of any similar tools designed to estimate solar energy potential, please link to them in the comments below. I'll try to add them to, my favorite site for finding alternatives to specific apps and services.
