Maps of Astronomy Programs

from AstroBetter 

Dimitri Veras, a postdoc at IoA-Cambridge, has created maps of Astronomy institutions in the USCanada, andAustralia. Mousing over the symbols reveals the number of majors and grad students in the department and the population of the city the department is located in. The symbol meanings are different on each map, but the primary astronomy institutions are marked with red filled circles on all three. This could be a great tool to help graduate school applicants and job hunters scope out institutions!
Dimitri wants to create complete maps for as many countries as possible, so if you know of good sources/lists for data for relevant departments, please leave a comment below or get in touch with Dimitri directly:dimitri.veras@colorado.edu.
