The CommonCensus Sports Map Project is an offshoot of the common census project that tracks sports fans across the US. Static maps for a number of sports are color coded to show fan areas. Of interest to me this week-end was the Clickable NFL fan map. Click on a map to draw a 200 mile fan area circle. Then a table is presented showing the breakdown of fans (from a sample) that turn up in that region. Of interest – the map I tested for the Seattle area shows SeaHawks were the #1 team (292 fans), followed by Denver Broncos, then Green Bay Packers. Interesting that Carolina Panthers were dead last with 1 fan in the sample! Note, common census sports fan project shows stats collected from some 16587+ fan votes and includes maps for NFL, NHL, MLB. See www.commoncensus.org/sports.php – static maps are updated every few days and online, clickable fan maps are always available. This innovative project enables sports fans to view sports fan areas and view maps from a variety of sports inlcudin NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, and NCAA… very slick and fun!
