The colors are on a range from 0 (blue) to 1 (red). (See the color key above the map.) Red means those locations were the most valued by survey respondents. Blue means locations had few or no value points placed on them.
To see how values points correspond with hotspots, take a look at our comparison map for the 2014 recreation values. The map is here and shows the recreation points respondents mapped in 2014 and the hotspot surfacemade from the points.
