What it looks like when you play connect-the-dots with America’s ZIP codes

What it looks like when you play connect-the-dots with America’s ZIP codes | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"You probably don’t spend much time thinking about the humble ZIP code. (Do you even know what the acronym ZIP stands for? We didn’t either: It’s “Zone Improvement Plan,” a reference to how the system would make mail delivery more efficient.) The ZIP code was introduced in 1963 — along with two-letter abbreviations for states, lest address labels become too crowded – and it has now guided mail for over 50 years.

Robert Kosara of eagereyes.org created a series of cool maps of countries around the world by connecting their ZIP codes in ascending order. For this one of the U.S., he traces American ZIP codes in ascending order without lifting his “pen.” (The map above is just the continental U.S., but a zoomable version of the map with Alaska and Hawaii is available here.)

It turns out that the numbers in a ZIP code have very specific meanings: The first three digits indicate a particular mail sorting facility, often in a major city, while the last two digits indicate a more specific delivery address. The codes start with 0 in the Northeast, and then gradually rise as you go west, ending with Alaska."

Dustin Fowler's curator insight, Today, 8:18 AM

Great article, with a true example of how racial identity is a matter of societal perceptions. 

Teresa Herrin's curator insight, Today, 10:52 AM

Okay, I'm justifying my post of this article to my AP Government page because:

1. It is really interesting.

2. As you know, politics is all too often about racial differences.

Sharrock's curator insight, Today, 11:30 AM

This is another issue that high school students can research as part of a presentation about race, class, and social identity. This may be useful in Health classes with a link to resilience while other subjects like social studies (and social studies electives) might facilitate appreciation of the USA's obsession with race and ethnicity --contrary to scientific findings that race is more a political construct than a scientific concept. English/writing courses might explore the concept of identity, of "passing" as straight white male/female in literature, folklore, movies, and can elicit creative responses sharing such experiences in poetry, short stories, art works.
