The polygon map/New color scheme
2-level color system
Antarctic and seas get predefined color. Boundaries are black, except for disputed boundaries that are red (and wider).
Every country is assigned a main color, in a way. Specific shade is selected from one of these plates:
24-plate set is at http://taw.pl.eu.org/~taw/colors/plates.html
projection = equalarea size = 1200 600 lat = 90 -90 long = -180 180 out = globe22.png background = political borders
Comments to old versions
Much lighter and softer. Like it much better. Imho, the purple still too strong, I think it could still benefit of another green, or mostly brownish color instead. Browns are little used in this map :-) Thanks. Ant
- I agree, it's much better, though still rather garish. Try making the ocean even lighter -- about #EBf7f7. I suggest making the state colors much lighter too; use more vivid shades only for their borders.
- I also suggest changing the blue/purple/pink states to light yellow/orange/brown, and special-casing Antarctica so that it's always white. --Mpt
- better. Why is it that Libya and Egyp appear the same color ? You should also lighten ocean even more. This is nice. Ant
