A Strangely Beautiful Map of Race in Americahttp://www.theatlanticcities.com/neighborhoods/2013/08/strangely-beautiful-map-race-america/6534/
This is something beautiful to stare at: Dustin Cable made a map out of US census data, plotting one dot per person,
color-coded by race and ethnicity. The result is a map which blends into smooth watercolor shades from a distance, but as you zoom in, reveals the detailed structure of how history has written itself in our addresses.
The photos below, all from his site, show a zoom in on the SF Bay Area, and on Mountain View (my home) in particular. You can see the ways that Asian and Latino populations are vividly clustered, with a background white population spread out. If you compare to the images in the Atlantic article linked above, you'll see that many other cities show a very different pattern: when you zoom in, each subregion becomes completely ethnically homogenous.
A beautiful work of mapmaking. You can browse the map of the US directly from here: http://demographics.coopercenter.org/DotMap/index.html
