1st Place (Thematic) & Best Private Sector Map: WLIA 2021

Blue moon is a flavor of ice cream that is ubiquitous in my part of the world, and growing up, I just assumed it was something all Americans were familiar with. But after discovering that it was only regionally popular, I went hunting for maps online. There were none, and I was consumed with a burning need to plot this flavor’s spatial distribution. After spending way too much time cobbling together and processing data from the Yelp API, I produced this piece. You can read more about it, and see some variations, by clicking here.
