The use of a pair of statistical maps to communicate the correlation between two geographic distributions is, in many ways, ill-advised. If portraying the correlation on the map does not provide a suitable solution, perhaps subordinating the map to a more graphic portrayal of the correlation should be attempted. Allowing a graphic representation of the interrelationship, the scatter diagram, to portray the spatial context as well might satisfy better the objective of the map author than allowing the spatial context, the map, to portray the interrelationship. -from Author
