    Standardized land use color chart

    In my experience, there is no real standard color scheme. The ideal is to make the colors effective in conveying the zoning information. In any map or presentation you prepare, make sure that you have a clearly define leagend.

    Personally, I have always used yellow shades for residential; orange for commercial; red for industrial, and green for agricultural or open areas,

    You may want to check with your state Planning Office or Regional Planning Commission for some more information.
