Node colors can be added to maps for a variety of different reasons. One company might have a specific color legend associated to controls or specific roles, while another might use color to distinguish possible paths within a process map. Adding colors to a map adds a visual element that is immediately distinguishable, and allows users to group or specify patterns to flow objects.
