US Post Offices

This map animation shows the progressive development of US post offices from 1800. The map highlights the post offices as coloured dots according to their appearance in time. A timeline at the bottom of the map displays a graph showing the accumulation of post offices each year. The tool was created using Processing, a programming language used for creating visually appealing designs.

Update Mar 19/13 – Seems like the map was taken offline… looking into it.
