Tech Jobs USA
American Tech Jobs is a visualisation of U.S. tech jobs. The Google Map tracks private sector employment in tech industries, showing where jobs are concentrated.
Users of the map can select any U.S. county to view the percentage of tech jobs in the county, the percentage of tech job growth and overall job growth. The visualisation includes data from 2002 to 2011 and individual years can be selected from a date slider above the map.
You can view an explanation about how the map was created (with the help of Fusion Tables) and also view the full source (on GitHub) and access all the data on Clare Bayley's blog.
