Cartographie des USA Retour à la lettre d'information géomatique n°10 Mapping the measure of America Site : Cet atlas interactif cartographie à différentes échelles (états, comtés, métropoles) des données riches et récentes, orchestrées autour d'un indice composite de développement humain modifié. Ce qui distingue cet atlas, c'est d'une part sa richesse et son actualisation, d'autre part les nombreuses possibilités de déclinaison statistiques : par aires géographiques, par sexe, par origine ethnique, une spécificité américaine. S'il convient d'insister sur la nature récente et détaillée des données statistiques mises à disposition par l'American Human Develoment Project, il convient également d'en cerner les limites.
