d3-us-border-history

A visualization of the evolution of borders in the United States of America.

Live Demo

Historical border data is provided by the Dr. William M. Scholl Center for American History and Culture at the Newberry Library. Original GIS data is available under a creative commons license at http://publications.newberry.org/ahcbp/downloads/united_states.html.

Caveats

  • In the dataset, there is mention made of the state of Deseret. This is not drawn on this visualization, but it is included in the dataset.
  • The dataset does not include Confederate Status during the civil war, so this was included programmatically.
  • It does not include Guam, the Phillipines, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Virgin islands, and numerous other current and historical U.S. Territories.
