Data Visualization: Immigration Explorer

With this interactive map from the New York Times, you can select certain foreign-born groups to see how they settled across the United States. Although the map is dated (it was created in March of 2009) and groups all African immigrants together, you can still see some very interesting patterns of settlement across the country over time.
