Ridiculous use of colours. No trees and still green? GTFO.

So the avrage is 10% in the lowest colour, I think using a very pale green colour is actually better, then just white. Probably every state has sone forest area.

You do realise that each percent could be represented with a different shade, right? Just like the rainbow isn’t exactly 7 colors

Ever heard of grass? Nothing wrong with using light green as the base colour that gets darker with higher percentage of forests.

Too many people criticising a perfectly legitimate choice of gradient and shouting hyperboles. Let's be honest, the use of colour is not "ridiculous" even if it's not the most optimal design.

Okay, I'll change the word ridiculous to totally misleading, and possibly even fake news.


cjrmartin t1_j8b82kp wrote

You're still wrong, it's neither ridiculous nor totally misleading even if it is sub-optimal in the shades of green used. The data is showing forests not general vegetation cover, I think it's perfectly acceptable to have a light green tone for the 0-20% bucket.

Also, happy cake day.

You're the kind of guy who'd put light, medium and dark green on a traffic light.

More efficient that way. Go, goer, and goest

I’m very tempted (based on personal experience) to blame the Modi governments nationalist propaganda as the reason for OPs colour choice.

So very tempted…

What does nationalist propaganda have to do with green colour.


wanmoar t1_j88o7tk wrote

Nationalism usually mean trying to paper over the bad things.

Here, for me, the desire to show India as ‘green’ (with green meaning good), was the reason (knowingly or by instinct) for the choice of colour gradient.

What an overthink of a simple visualisation.


wanmoar t1_j88schh wrote

Overthinking things is kind of my thing.

Fairly certain that’s not what I’m doing here.
