Designer Brandon Anderson has successfully represented the entire American population within a single map. The chart places a single dot upon the sheets for each U.S. citizen by way of data as it was accumulated during the 2010 Census.

This visual examination of the American landscape is more dense in areas that are populated by greater amounts of inhabitants. The project is remarkable given how large scale the analysis is. One would be hard pressed to take on even a segment of a single state, let alone the entire nation.

Anderson's website provides an alternative glimpse at the map as online users can zoom in on specific regions. It is in this way that they can get a heightened sense of the country's diverse communities.
