Visualizing U.S. Births and Deaths in Real-Time

On average, a baby is born somewhere in the U.S. every ten seconds, and someone dies every 13 seconds. You can watch that happen in real time with the simulation map on Google Drive. These are not actual births and deaths, but enough US Census statistical and geographical data are entered to give you a general idea of how often it happens. Watching the actual simulation at the link is mesmerizing. Nowhere Near Ithaca tells a bit about the project and how the data was compiled. Link -via Metafilter
