This post is the third in a five-part series (I. Projection, II. Base Maps, III. Color Selection, IV. Symbology, and V. Legends) which will look at various GIS tools and methodologies utilized by Stratasan.
In this post we will discuss the colors and color schemes we use in our maps at Stratasan. Color is an important part of any map. It helps the map reader understand what is being presented, helps separate and organize different attributes, and draws the reader into the cartographic presentation.
