I just participated in the Common Census Map Project. Here is a summary from their website.
The CommonCensus Map Project is redrawing the map of the United States based on Internet users’ voting, to show how the country is organized culturally, as opposed to traditional political boundaries. It shows how the country is divided into ‘spheres of influence’ between different cities at the national, regional, and local levels.
This information will finally settle the question over where disputed cultural boundaries lie (like between New York City and Upstate New York), contribute to the national debate over Congressional redistricting, and educate people everywhere as to the true layout of the American people that they’ve never seen on any map before.
Participation takes less than 10 clicks. Take a look and participate at: http://www.commoncensus.org
PLUS, if you’re a sports fan, you can vote on which sports teams you support, to make a similar map that shows exactly what areas of the US support which teams.
Pretty Neat! Maybe this will finally settle the pop/soda/coke divide?
