Custom colored maps

Postby coppro » Wed Apr 09, 2008 5:20 pm UTC

For a school assignment, I thought it would be cool if I could get a map of the world and have special coloring to represent some data. You know, like those maps that show some statistic like HIV rate and have the countries with a bad statistic colored red, and countries with a good statistic colored green. Is there any way I can easily get some program or something to make one, or would I be better off printing an outline and doing it myself?

That's sweet! Is there any way to make it do the whole world?

Hmm. I don't see one. I also don't see Antarctica. Maybe they figured having you color each region in the whole world would be too much of a pain to bother with?
