"As of March, the United States was home to nearly two thousand four hundred craft breweries, the small producers best known for India pale ales and other decidedly non-Budweiser-esque beers. What’s more, they are rapidly colonizing what one might call the craft-beer frontier: the South, the Southwest, and, really, almost any part of the country that isn’t the West or the Northeast. The interactive map below, based on newly released 2012 data gathered by the Brewers Association, illustrates this phenomenon and offers a detailed overview of the American craft-beer industry"

As culture evolves in the US, it lends a lot to culture of past. This map shows us ancestry of the population, and by doing this we can see and infer what type of culture is there based on what the brought over while migrating.

50 Years of Change

50 Years of Change | M@pping the World | Scoop.it

"Over the last fifty years, there has been a marked increase in the sheer quantity of state legislation that deals with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender rights. The Supreme Court has recently heard two LGBT cases, Prop 8 and DOMA, and are expected to announce their decisions in June of 2013. These cases will have a significant impact on both state and federal laws. Leading up to these decisions, it is worth taking a look at how state LGBT laws dealing with marriage, adoption, housing, hate crimes, hospital visitation, and employment have changed over the last half-century."

The Geography of Hate

The Geography of Hate | M@pping the World | Scoop.it

"The Geography of Hate is part of a larger project by Dr. Monica Stephens of Humboldt State University (HSU) identifying the geographic origins of online hate speech. Undergraduate students Amelia Egle, Matthew Eiben and Miles Ross, worked to produce the data and this map as part of Dr. Stephens' Advanced Cartography course at Humboldt State University.

 

The data behind this map is based on every geocoded tweet in the United States from June 2012 - April 2013 containing one of the 'hate words'. This equated to over 150,000 tweets and was drawn from the DOLLY project based at the University of Kentucky. Because algorithmic sentiment analysis would automatically classify any tweet containing 'hate words' as "negative," this project relied upon the HSU students to read the entirety of tweet and classify it as positive, neutral or negative based on a predefined rubric. Only those tweets that were identified by human readers as negative were used in this analysis.

 

To produce the map all tweets containing each 'hate word' were aggregated to the county level and normalized by the total twitter traffic in each county. Counties were reduced to their centroids and assigned a weight derived from this normalization process. This was used to generate a heat map that demonstrates the variability in the frequency of hateful tweets relative to all tweets over space. Where there is a larger proportion of negative tweets referencing a particular 'hate word' the region appears red on the map, where the proportion is moderate, the word was used less (although still more than the national average) and appears a pale blue on the map. Areas without shading indicate places that have a lower proportion of negative tweets relative to the national average."
