A 3D GIS map created by Chris Whong was published in today’s City Paper under the Info Art section. The map shows the U.S. Census’ data for Median Household Income in each census tract of the Baltimore-Towson Metropolitan Statistical Area.
In addition to color coding, each tract is extruded above the surface of the earth relative to its median income. The picture that emerges is typical of post-industrial monocentric cities. A densely-packed, less wealth urban core, surrounded by sprawling, wealthier suburbs.
