Just yesterday, Tim Meko from the Washington Post published a beautiful visualization project of our nation’s infrastructure. As President-elect Donald Trump plans to invest billions of dollars into policies that will “[t]ransform America’s crumbling infrastructure.”
Meko looks at six visualizations of the nation’s infrastructure based on data gathered from OpenStreetMap and other government sources. Included are visualizations of: the electric grid with electric transmission lines, bridges with those that are in need of repair distinguished as such, pipelines (crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas byproducts all included), railroads, major and minor airports with air traffic patterns, and ports and inland water ways.
