This map was created using an online mapping tool called mapbox. mapbox allowed me to seperate the data and give it a spicific shade to create a choloropleth map. But, first i downloaded the stateData.geojson file and upload it mapbox. The next step was to add layers while filtering the certain range. Each layer had the same charateristics such as opacity and 1px stroke but differed in color and criteria in population. The states with the population less than 10 thousand had a different shade than those that had those that had from 10-20 thousand.This went all the way to 1000+ which only included a few major cities. The darker shade had more population and the lighter shades had less ranging from around eight categories. .
