    • -(Counterintuitive - symbols that don't make sense).

    Induction

    1. Equal Frequency (Splitting it up - map data).

    2. Equal Interval (Taking the largest one and divide it into 5 chunks. Information isn't really spread out, and can look unpopulated).

    3. Standard Breaks

    4. Natural Breaks (Most accurate. Choropleth also uses this one).
