The easier answer may be that your region has a landscape screen surrounding it, maybe to make it look as if it has a mountain range around it.  A screen like that will always make the region look like a gray square from above.  If you really want a photo. kill the screen.

Hello, kenneth.

If you own the land, and you want the landmark for your land to show your land as from above, you click on the land details and edit the photo there.

If you are wanting the land to show up on the world map as something other than a grey square, it will show up all the buildings you have at ground level next time the map is updated (which is regularly/daily).

If you are wanting the land to show something else, for example "Land Rentals" then you'd need to delve into the world of sky writing/sky art and ensure this is placed somewhere below/around 300m, then when the Second Life pilot is doing his rounds photographing all, this will be captured.

Edited to say:

If the land is showing up as a grey square, it could be because there is already a large prim/set of prims, set somewhere up in the sky that need removing as they are blocking what you have at ground level.

Strange, there has been buildings and such at the ground level for about 4 months, and the picture has always been gray. nothing up above until about 1000m and that area is all green and has stuff on it as well.

Just going by what you have said, that "gray square" would show up on the map IF there was a prim such as a building pad somewhere above ground level but below 300 meters (or so -- I haven't checked lately). It COULD be that the person that owned the land left a work pad up in the sky and didn't realize it, and if you didn't return everything (or if there was an odd database snafu) when you bought the land then it could still be up there.

 

You could do an area search and see if there is a prim (or more) up there OR just fly up past 300 meters and see if you see anything. If someone besides you has something on your land you should be able to see that in the land tab.
