Fantastic Fall Foliage Maps

Cartographer Lauren Tierney and graphics reporter Joe Fox created some wonderful maps for a Washington Post article, Fantastic Fall Foliage...and where to find it. Here are the dominant colors seen in different areas with explanatory text.
The non-colored areas could use an explanation. The map is followed by a section showing various leaves and how they change, then by an animation of the color change geographically. The changing leaf color on the timeline as it moves to November is a really nice touch!
The final part has some details satellite images via Descartes Labs showing various detailed locations.
All in all a beautifully done piece - read more here- or click any image above.
