Map #1

Welcome back! 

For my first map making assignment this semester, I was to make a map of Massachusetts where the towns and cities are colored based on the population in 2010. The catch being that I could only use colors along the gray scale.

For the map, I used data from the Office of Geographic Information (MassGIS) and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, MassIT. I decided to create a choropleth map using graduated colors (the gray scale) and breaking it into 5 classes. The cities and towns with the lowest populations are shaded in the light gray while the cities and towns with the highest populations are shaded in the dark gray. Here is my completed work for the assignment:

Keep checking back for my next map!
