Looking Outward – McDonalds

by jmeng @ 5:49 am 18 January 2010

Found this in a blog, linked from another blog, etc…

While it is not interactive, I found it a very interesting visual representation.

This map (found here) shows data from the 48 contiguous states colored by distance to the nearest McDonald’s. The information was sited to be taken from AggData.com around September 2009.

Some interesting things:
– In the US there are approximately 13,000 McDonalds
– The furthest distance between two McDonalds is 107 miles (between Dakotan hamlets of Meadow and Glad Valley)

    I guess we al know that the US is crazy for hamburger, but what about China or Russia?
