We have been using maps as a new way of presenting comments sent in by our readers.
By plotting them on a map we hope that it will reveal a different side to the debates that normally take place on our message boards.
The maps themselves are published for illustrative purposes and do not represent a statistical analysis of the issue under debate.
This experiment will not replace the current message board formats.
Frequently asked questions
- I can't get the map to work.
If you're having problems with the map, let us know using the feedback form below. Don't forget to tell us which browser you are using, and try to be precise about what went wrong.
We are aware that a small number of people are presented with a blank map of the US, or no map at all, and are working to resolve those problems.
- Some items on the map aren't placed where they should be
For some of the content on the map we have only been able to plot the approximate location, for other pieces of content, if we plotted them too precisely, they would overlap and become very difficult to see clearly.
Please let us know what you think of this format and report any technical problems using the form below.
