Illustrating Washington, DC’s Racial Divide

Here is a very interesting map, created by Eric Fischer. Using the same technique and data set as this map of Chicago by Bill Rankin, Fischer mapped several American metropolitan areas. Each dot on the map represents groups of 25 people, colored by their self-identified ethnicity in the 2000 Census (red is White, blue is Black, green is Asian, orange is Hispanic). DC is outlined in black.
