I'm loving the charts in the Rand McNally Bible Atlas (1884-1910 copyright). Here are a few I picked out. I'll put it on my blog to-do list but for now, here's the full book: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/41140/41140-h/41140-h.htm

The bee cracks me up.

So true. This is why I don't share those "most used words about X in every state" maps.

Tip: don't just glance..stare long enough to read full sentences.

Playing with some logo ideas for Viz.bible. Something like this might work.

I found some data on abortion rates since Roe V. Wade. There's a clear change once ultrasounds became prevalent. Today the rate is as low as it was in 1973. I hope it gets to zero in my lifetime.

Excited to see this data release from Steve Ballmer. Nice visuals, searchable data.

This precinct-level map lets you look up your address, see how precincts near you voted in 2012 and 2016, or see how the margin has changed.

Today the news cycle turned to Coke vs. Pepsi and suddenly I understand this crazy world again...almost.

This year I'm working on a better way to link geography with the text of the Bible. My vision:

- Maps should adapt to the chapter you're reading, highlighting all the places in that chapter and important neighboring places.
- It should be as easy as clicking a work to find the exact spot on the map and get a quick overview of that place.
- More details about changing geography through time, nearby places, regional associations, and verse references should be just one more click away.

It will be a long process. These images are conceptual layouts for now. I'll share more in a video once it's converted to an interactive prototype.
