like, the only one.  no political demarcation, no geographical features.  just the most basic form of human infrastructure: roads

This guy also did another cool, and interactive, infographic, using a similarly artificial construct as the basis for the map: zip codes

infographics are cool

like hindsight

it blows me away how dry data, like property construction dates, can be so easily transformed into a visually appealing and interesting form that brings a greater (and different) level of understanding than the raw data by itself.
