    I can’t discriminate the colors well enough for the chart to be informative. Maybe you could vary the saturation as well as the hue, to spread them out in color space a little more? Or have the title pop up when you mouse over the ellipse.

    Agree with Doug. A solution could be that the name tag appears next of in the middle of each cloud. The differences between the colours are too subtle, and the alphabetical order – as opposed to geographical proximity – makes it difficult to make it out which one is which.

    the problem is some bounded populations are very small. so it wouldn’t go in the middle, but overlay and obscure. i’m working on something.
