Map Design Video - Coloring Maps
When it comes to map color, you have a tremendous amount of control over the appearance of your map. And this is important because color doesn't just contribute to the overall aesthetic appearance - it helps you convey the information in your map effectively. For example, you can group significant areas together by color, use a color key to show data, or highlight a particular spot with a bright color.
Our maps are carefully constructed to take advantage of the power of Adobe Ilustrator's color editing capabilities. You can select area objects such as states or counties with color using "Fill", then further tweak the appearance by adjusting the "Stroke".
Watch this short video to become acquainted with Fill and Stroke, and get some ideas for conveniently selecting multiple objects.
