Create a colour coded map from shp data

I've got some GIS data of the UK but the layer is a green colour (see screenshot).

 

I'd like to colour up the map with different colours based on one of the RCS fields but I've no idea how to tackle this - can anyone assist?

Hi,

 

start the style-manager for your GIS-layer, from there you can start "thematic map", chose your field that has to be used for thematic-analyses. That brings you to the options for different colors for different values (either value ranges for numeric fields or distinct values for others).

 

Does that help? - alfred -

Perfect - many thanks:smileyhappy:

 

I rarely use Map and so can never remember the steps for a particular task...:smileyfrustrated:
