    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.

    Bump. The URL changed somewhat; it's now just http://www.planning.org/lbcs/ .
