4. Thematic Map

Thematic maps show the distribution of certain phenomenon in an area or across the earth. For example, they can show population density, life expectancy, or even the average number of twinkies consumed per state. This is a thematic map because it shows the land reserves of the island of Hawai'i, what it is used for and who owns it.
