Hi,

It seems that the colors/opacity in the legend swatches for AGOL demographics layers do not match the colors/opacity in the map layer itself.

The metadata for the layers indicate that the layers are intended to be added with a 50% transparency and displayed over other base maps.  All good.  If one adds a demographics layer with a 50% opacity and displays it over a base map as suggested, the results are as follows:

Clearly the map/legend do not match.

If one looks at the map service and corresponding legend via the service directory, it appears a 50% transparency has been pre-applied to the legend.

Admittedly, I am getting a little old... and my eyes could be failing me...  Call me crazy?

Thank you,
Greg
