The red dots on this GIS generated
map are outlines of cities seen from above. The strength of this map is
its degree of precision in displaying the population grouping it actually
sees. It is very possible, however, that The Dot density Map below offers
a different approach to portraying the varying arrangements and densities
of the population. The way this map works it that a region is given
a specified number of dots for the size of the population per square mile.
The more people per sqaure mile, the more dots are applied to the region.
This type of map which employs one color is good for making a strong
impression at first glance. However, it is easy to make flaws in this type
of hand drawn map because all dots need to be the same size and in bulbous
regions, it would be very hard to distinguish random less populated because
it is hard to distinguish individual dots when they are all so class together
and appear to be one block . There are many more ways in which a population
map could be organized. For example, ifferent color shadings could be applied
to different degrees of density.
