Well, so many of you *****ed and moaned when the first route map came out for the new website, so it looks like DL made another one for ya. Previous complaints I remember were something along the lines of, "Looks like this route map was drawn by a 5th grader" and "I like to see the actual routes DL flies, not where they fly." Yes, it looks like this route map still has a few bugs (codeshare routes) but it is better than the old one.

This map shows that there are non-stops between ATH and ATL, JFK, LAX, and IAH. Only the first two exist. They should identify codeshare routes, but even so, I can't think of any IAH-ATH or LAX-ATH flights.
Also lists tons of destinations from ABE (Allentown, PA) but DL only serves a few places, and they aren't even mainline flights.
Somewhat of an improvement, but far from good, IMHO.

There's an option under the "Select Map Settings..." button that allows you to select only the nonstop flights. It seemed to solve the problem for me although it appears that codeshare nonstops are still included.

Great map, but it is misleading. When I click on CVG, it shows that there is a direct route to MAN. I checked on-line reservations and there is no such flight for July, which would be peak season. I figured that if it was a new flight that was not announced it would probably be seasonal. What I did find is that there is a connecting flight that goes through JFK, requiring an equipment change, and then continues to MAN with the same flight number. But the map shows to routes for the same flight number, one from CVG to MAN and one from JFK to MAN. So the map makes it appear that there are more flights to a city then there are. It is also showing flights from CVG to Panama City, San Salvador, Mexico City/ Likewise, when I clicked on both LAX and SLC it shows a number of international flights to Europe, which are also connecting flights through ATL, CVG or JFK.

They could definitely use some fine tuning. But I'll be the first to admit I've been screaming at DL's IT department for some time to roll this product out, as well as venting on numerous threads on this site over this matter.
It's a start and DL should be proud to have this feature on their award winning website.
