I see what your problem is, @becausealice2 . I am sure it is possible. Just try to map your coordinates to a choropleth. You might need to think about a function for that, specially if the area to be colored is relatively large and adjacent, for example by state. Then you need a linear discrete function.
But what are you looking for? This map without places, what is that for?
@GoldbergData no, it was not included in the topics to discuss but we could! It can be that you help @erictleung instead, it is also a nice project! We will talk about that too.
@becausealice2 the most important aspect to consider in your case is understanding that those coordinates are transformed (mapped) into a raster or svg polygons after reading something like the topojson. Explore a topojson file and see what I mean.
When we read a geojson of USA for example, the polygons you get are the result of a transformation function.
The topographic json file might contain either the polygons, so the transformation already occurred, some intermediate transformation, or the coordinates, the last two cases demanding the existence of function in your library to complete the transformation.

Hope you like it. Thanks to people here and there for helping with it.
