Interactive world maps are great, but the excitement over the US Presidential Election left us wanting to get a bit more detail. Data collected by Mark Graham, Adham Tamer, Ning Wang, and I (Scott Hale) created the opportunity to try this. I built a new US State Map template based on this Wikipedia map, and the result follows. Mark has a much more detailed discussion of the data on his blog under Obama wins the election! (on Twitter). Enjoy! The US state map option will be added to the map creation wizard in due course.
