State Grid of Dogs

Full Screen

While I was playing with tessellation, I was asking myself: How the hell can tessellation be used in data viz?

This block (forked from mbostock‘s block: State Grid, itself inspired by an Allison McCann graphic) is my first attempt to respond to my question: it adds some kind of context to the vizualisation.

This map would greatly suit a viz dealing with dogs in US. Unfortunately, I didn’t find any data set yet. Purple states are thoose starting with an ‘M’, plus the ‘FL’ state because these are my initials ;-)
