How to guess the map:

1. Someone posts a map, and you try to guess what the map's supposed to represent.
2. Person who guesses correctly gets to post the next map guessed on, or they can declare open floor, and then the thread is left dormant for several months it's first come first serve to post the next map.
3. The longer time it takes, the more and "better" hints the person who posts should give.
4. Map should be reposted at the top of every page. A default page is 20 posts long.

If you're making a map and need guides on all the island countries in the Caribbean Sea and the Indian and Pacific Oceans, here you go:

Here's the blank maps put in every thread, copy-pasted from last thread:

Old threads also link these three sites, so check them out if you want:

Guess the Map VII: Bhutan vs. Peru
Guess the Map VIII: Didn't Color the Island Countries
Guess the Map IX: The Richese are no match
Guess the Map X: "Portugal? Going to live it up down ol’ South America, huh, Mikey?"
Guess the Map 11: New map at least once per year
Guess the Map 12: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate Mercator
Guess the map 13: Mercator maps are cool, actually
Guess the map 14: We mapped our sky before we mapped our Earth

No, not really but not miles away either.

There is a complication, as is often the case how do you handle multiple years. This case a mean made little sense so I went with maximum, and that gave the weird artifact in Gabon. I could just as easily have gone with minimum, which would have given this, which I think could be more informative:



And this is the median:

Cuba's leading?
Something health system related?
Life expectancy?
Not health related. Cuba is actually third if we go with median, which is probably most meaningful.

Code:
|Entity        |     Value|
|:-------------|---------:|
|San Marino    | 0.7588200|
|Cook Islands  | 0.7458217|
|Cuba          | 0.7134637|
|Somalia       | 0.6778457|
|Seychelles    | 0.6535413|
|Belgium       | 0.6479259|
|Faroe Islands | 0.6456785|
|Viet Nam      | 0.6446272|
|Uruguay       | 0.6357233|
|Italy         | 0.6317867|

Do the maximum and minimum maps represent specific years, and if so how many years are covered by the median version?

Yes, and it varies by country but I have data from 1945 - 2021.
