Was ist eine Choroplethenkarte?


A Choropleth map is ideally used to visualize statistical or demographic data by means of displaying the respective areas in different color shades.

Depending on the purpose of the map and the news story that lies behind, different polygons are available and we constantly work on offering new polygons. Each available polygon set per country appears after you enter the location: city, country or continent.

We also offer different map projections. The default map projection is Mercator. Applying different projections will deliver a new systematic transformation of the latitudes and longitudes of locations.
