1. Add a color based on your data
Use the right color palette depending on the data you want to show. When you want to show different categories on the map we advise you to use contrasting colors. For a specific range, we advise you to use different shades of the same color or pick one of our pre-defined color palettes. Read our article about map styling for more information.
