Map where your meat comes from..

Just to meld the whole herbivore slant of this blog along with the posts on information systems and mapping, I decided to post on Factory Farm Map. Factory Farm Map allows users to examine the geographic distribution of factory meat farms around the U.S. The data is broken down to the county level and is intended to show where the highest levels of animal farming associated pollution would be found. I wish there was a similar interface for veggies so that people could understand the importance of recruiting local foods to combat centralized food production.
