Europe at War
This map records territorial changes in Europe during WWII. The scale-key defines ten different "textures" when we consider color. If we look at tonal values only there are four, making it difficult to distinguish between the variables with similar textural patterns and different color. In addition to the defined textured variables, the text on the map becomes a texture as well adding a new level of complexity to the image.
