Did you know there are now 8 different color palettes for thematic maps on PolicyMap? Subscribers and trial users now have the option to select from these new color schemes. Simply add data from the Add Data Layer tabs and in the legend you will find the option to “Change legend color”. These new colors and the 40 new color options for custom regions will now allow our users to greatly customize maps for any presentation.

PolicyMap’s default purple is still available but we’ve added some great new color palettes, which includes a new saturated purple, better blue palette, and a new rose palette (see below):

And for those that like a more simplistic look at color, we’ve added a beautiful grey palette.
