After the first series of the Ordnance Survey 1:50 000 scale map was published,
there was some criticism of the apparent similarity of the symbols for footpath and
county boundary in some areas. Although a map user with good discrimination
would not have been confused, the rapid response indicated that the users of
such maps do not hesitate to complain if the map language is not clear. It is
comparatively easy to find examples of poor or badly designed maps, which have
not solved ...

it's then called achromatic contrast or lightness contrast. As far as the legend
labels go, try changing the style of the text around a bit to add some interest and
variety. For example, if you are using a graduated symbol to represent numerical

Traditionally, maps were drawn by hand (see Fig. 1.2), but the advent of
computers has made the creation of electronic maps possible. Digitally designed
maps can be created by either using online options that can be downloaded from
the Internet or self-contained software that can be installed on desktops or
laptops. Ng and Hanewald (2010) compared manually created concept maps to
digital version and noted the electronic versions' advantage of the non-linear
