I don't know about everyone else, but I found it impossible to make the Pinterest popup go away and too annoying to put up with. Too bad, looks like interesting maps.

This is the non-pinterest site where everything lives.

It is apparently Map Week here on Metafilter and I am completely ok with that.

Yes, I agree the pinterest pop-up is very annoying. Sorry about that.

So is a cool map the opposite of a heat map?

Ooooooooohhhh. Definitely going to steal repost with attribution some of these to my blog.

Map of "food deserts" in the US - Chris Wilson (can't tell if s/he made the map or USDA did)

Governmental agencies rarely use Flash, in my experience, so my guess is that Wilson made it, especially since the sponsored map uses the same structure.

Sha is a really impressive data visualizer himself. He's one of the folks behind Trulia Insights, visualizing US real estate data in interesting ways. For instance, where people look to move in the US.

(Thanks for the love for Wind History; I launched it on projects.mefi last June.)

Right on, Nelson! WindHistory is very cool. And thanks for the links about Sha; I had figured there must be a professional connection there.
