In search of food deserts

In search of food deserts | Picturing It | Scoop.it

The map above shows a sample of locations across the country, and line length represents distance to the nearest store. For example, in areas with a lot of lines headed to one spot is an area with fewer grocery stores. In contrast, mostly small line segments mean more grocery stores, and therefore less distance to travel to buy groceries.


Places where residents have limited access to grocery stores are called food deserts. However, there's no exact definition of what limited access means or what a long distance is. Some set a 10-mile marker whereas others say a store should be less than a mile away where there is a lot of pedestrian traffic.

So instead of define counties or census tracts as food deserts or not, I took an incremental approach. I pinged Google Maps every twenty miles, west to east and north to south, and asked for the nearest grocery store. There were about 9,600 observations.

The Evolution of Bicycles

The Evolution of Bicycles | Picturing It | Scoop.it

"With over 75 intricately detailed illustrations we've traced the evolutionary tree of the bicycle from 1780 to the present day. From the early high-wheel "boneshakers" of the Victorian Era to the first racing bikes to the more recent evolution of mountain bikes and BMX rides, each bike on the chart is categorized by utility and represents new innovations in a given bicycle genre over time.  What results is a super-alloyed admixture of evolution, genealogy, famous models, and a catalogue of forms--a truly be-spoke rendering of two-wheeled transportation."
