What is a Choropleth Map?


A Choropleth map is ideally used to visualize statistical data such as demographic information or election results 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 or by focusing the map manually on the desired area.

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.
