This article about how US uses land is fascinating. They must be using some sort of data visualization software. Anyway, Bloomberg aggregates the amount of land used for various purposes, across the entire US, and then compares and contrasts it. But as a point of visualization, they show you if it were to all be concentrated in one spot, how big that spot would be.
For instance, if the top 100 land-owning families were to be adjacent, it would occupy a space the size of Florida. Another example: if all the urban areas in the entire country were to be consolidated, it would occupy a tiny bit of New England and rural housing is much, much larger; ranching cows occupies more land than anything else.
(It is not however saying that all of florida is privately owned, or that cows are only in the midwest, it is using states and regions to compare the sizes of land used.)
I suggest saving it for lunchtime. It’s not a long read, but I found myself spending a lot of time just thinking about what I learned, and comparing-contrasting things as they flitted through my mind.
