Well, here we go again, PowerBall fever is sweeping the US. With a record pot of more than $650,000,000 expected for the January 9, 2016 draw there’s no wonder that the excitement is building!

NOTE: I felt the gang at Avenza would be interested in this data in order to produce a nice product for users of PDF maps in iOS. Basically, using this version on PDFmaps has more intelligence (like georeferencing – although it hasn’t been field verified yet). The map is now available online in the PDFmaps map inventory and available for free download. Users of PDF Maps can access the map via their iOS device HERE. Need PDF Maps? Get it right here in the iTunes store! Here’s a handy QR code you can also use to grab the map!

This from a reader… ODT’s 2008 Presidential Election Map allows you to see exactly how and why Barack Obama’s victory was so stunning. This map shows how dramatically the political landscape has been changed especially when mapped out on a USA population map. ODT’s new election map shows how many people live in each state. Each of the map’s grid squares represents 250,000 people. On the map is the exact population of the larger states (for ease of comparison, and to eliminate the need to count individual blocks) along with each state’s electoral votes. The bigger the state on the map, the greater the electoral clout. See here
