RE: Week 13: In Climbing Income Ladder, Location Matters
I completely agree with lzhang and holtvg description of the merits and shortcomings about the visualization.

The designer has made use of combination of multiple hues color schemes.(YlOrBr,PuBuGn) etc in order to represent the different percentages. Using this approach significantly improve the visualization look , but at the same time it becomes difficult to interpret the percentages unless we use mouse overs to manually determine the percentages.

For eg the Bakersfield area in California shows 12.4 percent and is shown by slightly lighter yellow color which is assigned to 10% in the legend. In comparison to Provo area (14%) which is close to the shade of light green. In my opinion the legend should completely describe the color scheme used in the map . It could have been a better approach to follow 1 color scheme between 2 ranges.
