The Racial Dotmap - Part Two
The Racial Dot Map was one of my favorite Google Maps of last year. It is now also possible to view the same data overlaid on an OpenStreetMap.
The Racial Dot Map is a fascinating visualization of the geographic distribution, population density, and racial diversity of the USA. The map uses data from the 2010 US census, with each of the 308,745,538 dots representing the location of one American.
If you prefer your underlying map to be open-sourced then you can now view the data on a Leaflet.js OpenStreetMap, called the Racial Dotmap Site.
