A couple quick follow-ups to my dot maps of Chicago.
First, I made some similar maps for the Bay Area showing race and ethnicity, poverty, and education. Standard solid-color statistical maps are especially problematic in areas where there’s a huge contrast between sparsely populated and dense areas, as is in many western American cities.
Second, I made a short video explaining my Chicago map, which recently won a mapping contest in Switzerland. Here it is! Enjoy!
