Thematic maps portray attributes of locations and features. For example, a thematic map could show the population density by region, or election results by state.
This example shows how to create a choropleth map, in which the color of each state represents the population density of the state.
Political maps typically use contrasting colors that make it easy to distinguish one country, state, or province from its neighbors.
