    Adding fill rule
    Copy Code
    NMapFillRuleRange fillRule = new NMapFillRuleRange(countries, "POP_CNTRY", Color.White, Color.Black, 12);
    fillRule.DataGrouping = new NDataGroupingOptimal();
    shapefile.FillRule = fillRule;

    The following images illustrate the different data grouping algorithms applied to a world map, which contains information about the population of each country:
