Rainbow Map Shows Nation's Public Radio Stations

The has an online map of public radio stations across the United States. 

Created by Seattle-based photographer and designer Andrew Filer, it shows the broadcast range of every American public radio station—and not just NPR affiliates, but classical, pop, and other non-profit broadcasters.

Filer took his data in part from the FCC’s frequency search. The interactive version of the map is available, Click Here.

It’s an interesting dataset to stroll through. On the eastern seaboard, for instance, you can see the outsize reach of WHYY, the Philadelphia-based NPR affiliate, which is in orange above.

 Tom's Take: I would love to see someone produce maps like this for every FM frequency.
