Who Can Best Use This Map Utility ...

In interpreting and illustrating events taking place in some locations and not others, the use of shaded or "color-contrasted" maps can be useful. This webform allows you to choose up to twelve different groupings of states - along with your title, choice of colors and labels. A computer program will then draw a US map (as a "gif" format file) with your groupings shown in the selected colors. The map can then either be printed or saved and used later. For printing purposes, a color printer is, of course, ideal!
