Map Display with the Pase Domesday Book Online: St Albans holdings

I am particularly interested in the holdings of St Albans Abbey in the Domesday book due to living near there and also writing a novel based on a fictional version of the town. So here’s a map that I generated using the new Pase Domesday Book online.

It’s quite pretty, but somewhat lacking perhaps? Some basic additional information would make the map come alive and also be a lot more useful. For instance names of the vills and also the shires would help a lot I think. Perhaps some sort of adaptation of a Google map might work?
