Geographic Data and the 2012 Election

- November 9, 2012

Via both Cosma Shalizi’s “Pinboard feed”:http://pinboard.in/u:cshalizi and an email tip, this map of the geographical origins of racist tweets in the US shows a rather striking pattern.

For a very different representation of geographic data, Mark Newman has some “very nice new cartograms of voting in 2012 “:http://www-personal.umich.edu/~mejn/election/2012/ (Gastner, Shalizi and Newman’s original cartograms of the 2004 election, which received widespread circulation, are still available “here”:http://masi.cscs.lsa.umich.edu/~crshalizi/election/ ).
