Underwater: Negative Equity Mortgages By State : NPR.

NPR had an interesting map up last week showing state-by-state the percentage of people underwater on their home mortgages. I have long been a believer in the power of maps to communicate data quickly in an easy-to-understand format. This lies at the root of my interest in geographic information systems (GIS) as a tool to help analyze urban sustainability and develop plans for the future. Check this out and get a sense of just how extensive the problem is and how it compares state-by-state.
