Here's a pretty cool interactive map made by Brandon Martin-Anderson showing, according to census data, every single person in the United States and Canada. The map uses the 2010 US census and the 2011 Canadian census, for a total of 341,817,095. But interestingly, there are no other visual aids--no landmarks, no borders, no rivers or lakes. So if you want to find yourself, you'll have to go by population groups, which gets pretty difficult as you zoom further in. Unless you live in Nunavut or something.
this looks like a heat map for internet users...
to mars or bust!
It does have some "landmarks" I recognize. Islands on a river that I know don't have populations (other than campers in the summer).
This maps claims that there are people living in the cemeteries and public parks near my house - not just at the entrance addresses, but actually dispersed throughout. Unless numerous homeless people used grave markers as addresses, I find that highly unlikely.
Hmm, Reminds me of a smokers lung.
If you have ever thought why the republicans lost the election . . . This is why.
Bottom line: Size does not equal numbers. Hence, the electoral college.
"Nobody lives in Central Park/Pier 12/County Lockup/Abandoned Themepark.
The census reported that someone lived there.
This says someone lives in the middle of a lake.
The census reported that someone lives in a block which includes a lake, and that's where their dot was randomly placed. Also, some people live in the middle of lakes."
I wonder how legitimate this is, when apparently near what appears to be the intersection of US-60 and Loop 101 in Tempe, Arizona, there is a section of the map where people don't live in a pattern that spells out "P 52"
