Commute Map


Commute Map will let you type in any zip code in the United States and then show you the primary areas where workers who live there commute to work.

I think it’s very interesting and creative, though I don’t think I’d incorporate it into my lesson on neighborhoods (see A Lesson Highlighting Community Assets — Not Deficits).

Any ideas on how this could be used in the classroom?

  1. Just a note- this page does not work with Explorer.

  2. Larry – Interesting. I did not see any reference to where they get their data, though. Would be nice to know.
