Photographer Eric Fischer's color-coded maps of racial segregation are captivating, particularly once you find your own neighborhood.
Fisher used a straight forward method borrowed from Rankin: Using U.S. Census data from 2000, he created a map where one dot equals 25 people. The dots are then color-coded based on race: White is pink; Black is blue; Hispanic is orange, and Asian is green. [Mpls, St. Paul is pictured below.]
