I am reproducing the choropleth example here:
However, being from Michigan, I noticed that:
The entire upper peninsula (U.P.) is missing
Michigan, which is know to be shaped like a mitten, is completely mis-shapened
The great lakes appear to be missing
When I compare it to Google maps, I can see that the parts of the great lakes on the American side are essentially combined with its nearest county. So it ends up looking like a blob.
Is there a way to fix/remedy this?
