How do you define the Midwest?
As part of their exhibit Reinvention in the Urban Midwest
(in most-certainly-not-in-the-Midwest Boston) Sasaki has created an online tool for people to contribute what the boundaries of the Midwest are for them. Results
can be sorted by respondents' percentage of time spent in the Midwest and state of birth. An Atlantic Cities
article shows one writer's opinion, and also links to Bill Rankin's similar Midwest mapping
project on his always-excellent Radical Cartography site. An excerpt
from The Midwest: God's Gift to Planet Earth
has a more irreverent take on mapping the region.
