States, United

I’m a little late to the party, but in honor of the Supreme Court marriage equality ruling last week, I wanted to make a commemorative visualization:

I created it with D3.js (code is here), and the idea was inspired by this awesome letterpress print from Etsy (discovered via Uncoverly). All states are rendered to scale, and you can hover over them to see which states are which.

Couldn’t agree more with Obama here: “We can say in no uncertain terms that we’ve made our union a little more perfect…America should be very proud.” And if you haven’t read Justice Kennedy’s closing paragraph in the majority ruling, it is quite lovely.
