New Map of the Census

The Census has a lot of great data, but it is only ever displayed in the sometimes oddly shaped census tracts.  A gentleman by the name of Brandon Martin-Anderson decided to instead plot a point for every individual counted in the US or Canadian census, spreading them within the census tracts as necessary.

The result is a map that requires no legend or borders or roads to show the fascinating population patterns of North America.
