MOTW #48

There's been lots of ballyhoo about the US Population
having reached 300 million this past week. Here is a pretty cool
interactive map from MSNBC's web site. There's a timeline on the
bottom so you can see population change through history and lots of info
when you scroll around the states. I had trouble with this in Internet
Exploder but it worked great in the Netscape/Firefox world. Happy

This map was done as part of a study of food choices around University City High School in Philadelphia. The map lets you choose categories of food and recreational opportunities in an attempt to advocate for better opportunities to make healthy choices in an inner city neighborhood.
