MSL landing site slope map, V2

Rover driver Paolo Bellutta notes on the forum at unmannedspaceflight.com that JPL uses a three-color scheme in making their slope maps for traversability analysis:

0°-10°: grayscale — very little slip on any terrain

10°-12.5°: blue — some slip on sand, little slip on bedrock

12.5°-25°: green — no traverse on sand, some slip on bedrock

25°-90°: red — no traverse

Accordingly, I remade my slope map to use this color scheme. Also, I cropped down the image to make it readable by more image programs:
