I posted yesterday about residential buildings in Seoul and South Korea. Here’s a quick look at the buildings in my previous city, Washington, D.C. Darker shades represent taller buildings:
The map illustrates where house hunters are looking for homes (property views) while the bar chart shows you how many people are visiting Trulia.com each month (monthly visits).
Yesterday’s Census maps — in 3D. Color shades represent growth rates. Extrusions represent raw population changes.
This map below, created in ArcGIS 3D Analyst, details only those figures for cows, pigs and chickens. Darker colors in the respective food categories represent higher county-by-county animal density levels during the year. The taller 3D extrusions represent total animal sales from farms over than time.
It’s clear from this map that chickens are largely raised in the south, though a significant number appear in a tri-state region around Chesapeake Bay (a situation that’s causing serious environment implications). Pigs come from the Mid West (Iowa, mostly) and North Carolina. Cattle are concentrated through the Great Plains, as one might expect, and pockets in the West.
