Staggering work of genius from Portland, Maine – Photographer, Designer, Taco Maker, Birder, Biker, Business Owner

Interesting, cut up representation of 50 largest metro areas, Portland Maine makes the cut

50 states and 50 metros.

The fifty largest metro areas (in blue), disaggregated from their states (in orange). Each has been scaled and sorted according to population. The metro areas are US-Census defined CBSAs and MSAs.

It took me a moment to grok it, for instance, there are no labels but if you hold your cursor over an image you get the image’s title in a tooltip (annoying wait!). Otherwise this is a very interesting way to parse the basic data of the largest metropolitan areas. Portland, ME, my home town is on the list and not even last!
