The (Newer) Interactive Singles Map
Once upon a time I built an interactive map of single folks in the US to challenge a horrible terrible pop statistician. Now that my cask of young men's tears have run dry, I figured it was time to update it.

Full of modern-day technology, too. Java has been cast aside for D3, and I'll be able to just drop in new Census data as it shows up. Did my best to replicate the look of the old map while adding a few more cues to interactivity.

Well done! Thanks for not obfuscating the source code.

If you switch the projection to d3.geo.albersUsa() you can display Alaska and Hawai'i, too. Although you'll have to move the bubbles that are currently in lower left.

You're welcome - it was my first real foray into d3 so I'm already embarrassed by it, but so it goes.

I actually had it set up that way originally! In the end, though, the population centers just weren't big enough for me, and I went with the key instead. And I'm a terrible person.
