    You didn't say what kind of map. Also, when you say 'highlighted' are you saying that that area of the map is colored green? Or that the name is in letters in a green 'highlight' bar?

    Some online maps color an area of the map green to denote a park or forest preserve or other protected habitat. Other maps that are illustrating terrain might use it to denote a low elevation, flat area of land.

    You need to be a lot more specific if you want an answer that means anything. Perhaps if you added a link to an example of the map you describe ....

    It usually means the map makers got tired of using red and brown.
