US Population Density

In a big country
Dreams stay with you
Like a lover's voice
Fires the mountainside
--Big Country

Cool animated map of population density of the continental United States from 1790 - 2015. Many of the blank spots in the first 100 yrs are due to lack of data, as people were living in many of those areas--albeit thinly w.r.t. density. The visual of the second century is one of increasing splotches as population becomes more concentrated, particularly in urban areas.
