Stonecrest Update

The Proposed City of Stonecrest

Following are the latest versions of the map for the proposed City of Stonecrest, in southeast DeKalb County, Georgia.  You can find the latest information on Stonecrest here.

A Racial Dot Map of DeKalb County

One Dot Per Person for the Entire United States

A fascinating map of the United States is now available on line which illustrates the racial makeup of the entire country by displaying 308,745,538 color coded dots geographically, one for each person at the location they were counted in the the United States at the time of the 2010 census. Each dot is color-coded for race and ethnicity.

The map was created by Dustin Cable, a demographic researcher at the University of Virginia's Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service. A full explanation of the methodology used, and the entire map itself, can be found here.

Following the jump are two maps, one of which overlays DeKalb County and its existing and proposed cities over the map, and a second map which focuses on the proposed City of Tucker.
