No idea, just a semi-random guess:
Something to do with embassies?
Hint ... Libya turned gray in 1965, and in 1998 they started considering moving to light blue, and in febuary the new government argeed to continue the move
So is blue some sort of main trading partner? (such as the eu)
yep ... colored after which countries have which default track gauge on their public railways
This might be really hard for anyone who doesn't live in North Carolina, but...
Why should anyone know stuff about traitor states?
green - Counties in North Carolina where the majorty of the residents smoke marijuana on a regular basis
blue - Counties where they don't?
/doesn't know nothin about north carolina except that there's hippies on the islands
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.
Something about the Appalachians?
Is it specifically about the Blue Ridge?
Counties where most rivers drain to the Atlantic vs. counties where most rivers drain to the Gulf of Mexico.
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?
Counties with the most snowfall? Something to do with climate?
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).
Oh okay. I'll post something in a bit.
Separate names with a comma.
