I’m a blogger and writer from Shawville, Quebec. I’m best known for The Map Room, which returned in January 2016 after a four-year hiatus. I also review science fiction for AE and edit a fanzine called Ecdysis. More about me.

Census Dotmap

Dotmap

Brandon Martin-Anderson’s Census Dotmap plots every person counted in the 2010 Census as a single dot on the map. Which is to say that there are 308,450,225 dots on the map. Zoom in and see (though it’s not labelled and can be confusing to navigate at higher zooms). I suppose this is the demographic equivalent of the 1:1 map of Borges’s “On Exactitude in Science.” Via Boing Boing.
