Virginia Sprawl Map

https://aelindeman.github.io/virginia-sprawl-map

Purpose

This map aims to visualize areas of Virginia that experienced large population changes between 1990 and 2010, and the urbanization (consumption) of land in those same areas between 1992 and 2008.

Data sources

Created and adapted for the web by Alex Lindeman for research purposes at University of Mary Washington. You can also download the short report and poster for this data.

Virginia basemap from Wikimedia Commons. Population and land area data is available from the Census Bureau and the USGS National Land Cover Database.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
