Author: Lisa Mahapatra

Best Practices:
  • Clear title and sub-title
  • Good spacing between the maps
  • Maps are a reasonable size
  • Excellent use of small multiple
  • Good use of choropleth maps
Recommended Enhancements:
  • Change the title font to regular case, not all upper case
  • Consider not reusing the colors on all of the maps since they represent different things
  • Align the squares inside the color legends to make the legends look less cluttered
