STATE OF THE UNION    Mapping & Infographics

My interest in politics led me to develop a complex system of mapping socioeconomic data about the states and an easy way to compare them. The map uses a series of concentric circles to quickly detail information about a state’s population, economy, and politics, and a matrix in which the velcro-backed state cards can be aligned, according to geography or rank in any of the detailed categories. The ranks are shown on the included key, which explains the colors on the map and the purpose of the project.
