Today's infographic comes by way of Stephen Von Worley, an American guy who has a lovely website called Datapointed.net. The site is a festive use of visualizations to explain or track social and historical stuff.
Von Worley went to some trouble looking for a way to display the near-total presence of McDonald's in the United States. Using help from a site called AggData, the map here is his attempt to visualize the broad swath that is Mickey Dee's.
Each bright spot is a location with one or more McDonald's.
This is fast news. Sandwich-maker Subway has surpassed McDonald's for the most franchises.
The green-and-yellow store now has 34,000 stores worldwide, compared to about 32,000 golden arches stores.
Subway's, you may not know, spent its younger years growing up in Canada. It started, in 1986, in St. John's Newfoundland, Canada.
