Mapping the states I visited
2 minute reading time
Henrique’s Impossible List shows a list of countries that they’ve visited so far and their goals for the future. I personally have not travelled to many countries, but I have visited a several US states!
Instead of presenting the states in a list, I thought it would be very cool to visually show it on a map. Ideally the map would be encoded in a SVG so that:
- The image will scale regardless of the device size
- I can manually edit the source to show the visited regions
/* Individual states can be colored as follows: */
/* In this example, Kansas, Montana and Pennsylvania are colored blue,
and California and Delaware are colored red.
Place this code in the empty space below. */
Such an elegant way of coloring in the states! Now it’s up to me to come up with some categories. As of the time of writing, I decided on:
- Green: Places I’ve lived
- Blue: Places I’ve visited
- Darker Gray: Places I’ve driven through
Here’s how I colored by map:
For the last couple weeks, I’ve been brainstorming new pages for my website and came up with https://brandonrozek.com/visited.
At the time of writing, it only has the colored in states and a list of cities I’ve been to. Though I’m welcome to any suggestions you might have. Feel free to get in touch!
