Urban Mapping Map Gallery – Geo-stories to tell

Today we unveil the first in a series of maps created to tell stories–we make the map, you tell the story! We’re thrilled to have our first map, exploring obesity factors in the US, created by Gretchen Peterson. Looking at educational level attained, consumer expenditures on fresh vegetables, foreign-born US residents and median household income, there appear to be some interesting correlations.

Like what you see? Don’t like what you see? Either way, let us know by joining the conversation and commenting. We’re always on the lookout for more cartographers to join our Cartographer in Residence program, and of course any curious and talented technical staff.
