Title Exploration of local distribution of major ethnic groups in the USA
Abstract Knowledge about the local distribution of major ethnic groups in the USA is an important source of information upon which the success of political and economic decisions may depend. Enhancing this information with additional attributes, such as the specific income or spoken languages, reveals interesting aspects on social constellations as well as their interdependencies. The presented visualization facilitates the intuitive exploration of such multidimensional data sets with references to geographical units. Thus, a quick insight into the inherent patterns and characteristic features is provided. Thanks to the high scalability of our visualization technique it can even be used with an iPod-resolution.
