Map of Corn Production the US Made of Candy Corn

Jill Hubley is my new favorite person to follow on Twitter. Her maps inspire me. She’s an artist, cartographer, and data visualizer. She makes data visually pop.

Most recently, she’s been participating in a Twitter challenge to make maps. Among Hubley’s best contributions is this Jell-O map of the San Andreas fault that jiggles California into two pieces.

But what I want to focus on right now is this heat map of corn production in the United States. It uses the map below from the US Department of Agriculture to chart out where Hubley placed candy corn (everybody’s favorite Halloween candy) on the map and how it is positioned.
