The True Colors of America’s Political Spectrum Are Gray and Green

The True Colors of America’s Political Spectrum Are Gray and Green

We often hear about «the political landscape» — but what an ingenious new (literal) take on it. It goes like this: Take satellite images. Divide them it into small squares. Take all pixels in those squares and sort them by colour. Suburbs and skyscrapers, forests and farms, hills and highways become distinct gradients. Now match those with the actual political landscape of the 2016 US election. Endlessly fascinating. Have a look.
