Census Dotmap
Claudio Saunt in M.A.P. Project
Brandon Martin-Anderson at MIT has produced an endlessly fascinating dot map of the current population in North America. Most maps showing population distribution bin the data by state, county, or province. Those representations can be misleading and are simply less revealing than the fine-grained map created by Martin-Anderson. The M.A.P. Project aspires to create a version of Martin-Anderson's map for early America -- with far less precision, of course.
