    can't find the link, but its:

    yellow - single family
    orange - multi-family
    red - commerical
    blue - office / institutional
    purple or grey - industrial
    green - open space

    variations in colors generally get darker for more intense/dense development

    You might check out the Land Based Classification Standards online at http://myapa.planning.org/lbcs/standards/colorcodes.htm.

    Planit's quick overview is on the money.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    The links in it appear to be dead.
