US map displays one dot per person
Go ahead. You can say it: “Again with the maps?” And this one isn’t even new. It’s several years old. But it’s no less intriguing for the detail and information it presents.
As hard as it is to believe, this interactive map consists of one dot per person as counted in the 2010 US census, with each dot color coded according to race. Turn on the map labels, zoom in, and you can examine cities block by census block. The map’s creator offers a full explanation of the map including details of why some odd colors appear and why some dots are located in parks, lakes, or cemeteries.
