One dot for every person in the United States

Census Dotmap

So this is pretty cool. Yesterday Boing Boing linked to a Census Dotmap, which places one dot for each of the 308,450,225 people documented by the 2010 census. It was made by cartographer Brandon M. Anderson because he “wanted an image of human settlement patterns unmediated by proxies like city boundaries, arterial roads, state lines, &c. Also, it was an interesting challenge.” The map is available in a huge, zoom-able form as well.
