      You know, the New York City skyline only takes up a tiny fraction of the land mass of New York state. The Adirondack park for example, is much larger mass. There may be even more rolling hills of farmland in Western NY... my point, perhaps "NYC" would be a better title for that first profile...

      This is great! Thanks, Jason for sending me this way.

      I really like the Arch over St. Louis, but does the little water drop indicate that it crosses the Mississippi River? It doesn't, of course, much to my disappointment. ..

      This particular visualization was focused more on our actual trip through the states, not their overall land statistics.

      Why does NYC have a Transamerica pyramid in it? :)

      I was wondering the same thing... at first, I thought it was San Francisco and then I realized you omitted the greatest city of them all!

      Its funny, I didn't relate this to sparklines at all until much later, after all the random attention it received from the blogosphere. I definitely enjoy occasionally (even if accidentally) doing something simple enough to fall within a Tufte-like design concept.
