MOTW #91 - Lake Tahoe Fire Risks

The Sacramento Bee had an article this past summer with a nice map illustrating how much building is going on in high risk areas for forest fires. The red are areas of high fire risk and the black dots represent building permit locations.

Congratulations on MOTW going blogospheric. (Hmm, was this week's choice a way to sneak in Douglas county?)

Seems like an unusually nice job for newspaper cartography. Good use of symbols, good contextualization, meaningful juxtaposition of data. The Sacto Bee must have somebody on staff who actually gets maps.
