comment How should you create simple, color-coded graphics for color-blind people when the graphics are particularly thin?
Use a key with a different number of 'teeth' for each of the four modes. Use them in both the colour and the black & white versions. 1,2,3 or 4 teeth, (with the four teeth being two either side) should be easily distinguishable if designed well.

sure - there's a wealth of examples and demos on the Google Maps API - such as this moon example, drawing on your map, placing markers at a lat/long and including using info windows

That's what I mean - you can use your own illustrated map using the Google Maps API. No google data needs to show - only your own map. Essentially you use Google Maps as an image viewer. example

Just wondering...can you just use the Google Maps API to display your own image instead? No need to re-invent the wheel. Or maybe something like PanoJS

comment Is “UX” as an abbreviation for “user experience” meant to be ironic?
The x is very common in medical environments to denote the rest of a common word rather than a second word starting ex... Sx for Symptoms, Px for Prescription, Dx Diagnosis, Fx Family, etc.

comment Is this wireframe usable to view and add users ?
Consider the worst possible scenario that can occur in your system. How does this design cope? For example what are the maximum number of users? What happens when the list on the right becomes very long? What happens when users have same or similar names? Are the id's even names? What if you want to add all users? Should you be able to sort the users. What if you want to remove all users? Should you be able to search the users in the right hand list as well as the left? Is the right hand list sorted in the same way? Is removing the user you just added easy Might you want an undo? etc, etc...
