ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to define the class intervals and color scheme of choropleth maps for the publication 1981~2010 Korea climate atlas. The class intervals should be determined to represent properly the distribution and characteristics of climate elements considering characteristics of data such as their ranges(maximum and minimum). For the temperature regime, 23 classes were defined with the equal interval method while for the precipitation regime, 15 class were. The divergent color scheme was used for color scheme.The red color for the higher temperature classes and the blue one for the lower temperature classes have been selected. The green color has chosen for the greater precipitation classes while the brown one has for the lesser precipitation classes.
