Malawi-Atlas design with ColorBrewer

Malawi - An atlas of social statistics was recently published by IFPRI and the National Statistical Office of the Government of Malawi.

The atlas was designed using "ColorBrewer", a tool designed to help people select good color schemes for maps and other graphics. ColorBrewer was developed by Cynthia A. Brewer and Mark Harrower at the GeoVISTA Center, PennState University.

The atlas authors describe that ColorBrewer was used for on-line color selection and for evaluating alternative legend color schemes.
