American Vice: Mapping the 7 Deadly Sins

Infographic of Lust in America

These great infographics from Wired’s September 09 issue were created by a team at Kansas State. The set of maps represent US per-capita statistics that you could associate with the Seven Deadly Sins. I don’t want to venture into what story is being told in different regions of the country but it is quite interesting.

In another geographic infographic (created by Floatingsheep.org) the US locations of search-terms are compared to see where the greatest prevalence of bowling alleys, churches, guns and strip clubs are.

Seems like we should be able to make some kind of master map here…
