"Not
much action in this forum, so I thought I would throw out a map that I
did not too long ago, for an upcoming publication. It seems like the
map won't be used in the publication in the end, though.

This is
using data from a South Africa programme on invasive alien species and
presents estimates on ratio of plant cover that is not native. I was in
quite some time pressure, and I originally intended to have the
neighboring countries displayed with a neutral tone and a fade out
gradient - but I wasn't sure on how to do that in Illy... (both for
fills and strokes) - maybe someone can fill me in on that... ?

The data is not from GIS - I traced this from other maps.

Looks good.

Probably
it's a constraint of the data, but putting both 0% and no data in the
same class could be very misleading, especially given that 0% should be
very significant in this instance. "

Dave, I know - but I think the data I was using was prepared that way...
