    No idea, just a semi-random guess:

    Something to do with embassies?

    Hazarding a guess: Counties that voted to not secede in 1861.

    ...off to research, looking for a better guess...

    This was NE Tennessee, not NW North Carolina- but does it have to do with the "state" of Franklin?

    Or something about the High Country Council, whatever that is?

    The state of Franklin is an interesting guess, but no. Not the High Country Council either, but it does have to do with mountains.

    Maybe the answer should be given anyway, since a week passed since the map was first posted :)

    Nothing so far. It does have to do with mountains, and is related to geography. Another hint: there are about 20-30 categories worldwide, North Carolina just has 2. Also, the map is on Wikipedia.

    Really? 'The map is on Wikipedia' is now a clue?

    Yes! Since this is took a long time, I will give you credit for the correct answer. The detailed answer is Koppen climate classification (green is humid subtropical, blue is warm summer humid continental).
