Today’s map comes from Rockford, Illinois. The map was created in response to a local referendum taking place in November where the decision to allocate $139 million in bonds will be made. These funds will be used to improve all the schools in the municipality. The map, created by the school board, provides residents with information about the improvements that must be made on each of the schools. The map, though simple, is an example of how cities are increasingly using online, interactive maps to convey large amounts of information in a highly visual way. The map was created using a Google Map with associated points (likely linked through fusion tables).
