This is a example of a good map. This map shows clear and detailed ancestry information through simple colors which are pleasing to the eye. There aren’t bright colors that make things stand out. Instead it uses simple, neutral colors which work well with this type of data. The contrasts of neighboring colors make smaller details stand out. The labels used are simple and clear information. The other reason I chose this map is because it does not have a North arrow or heading. This type of map must be assumed that it is aligned to the North. Also the map would not be used for navigation purposes as it does not have navigable features.
