This visual mapping explores the cultural landscape of Asian American settlement and communities across the United States. It focuses on migration patterns since the late 1990s, and how these Asian communities have propagated new influences in mainstream American culture. Within the context of this article, Asians are defined as ethnic groups from the Far East, Southeast Asia, and the Indian subcontinent.

Exploring the minutiae of info graphics is the perfect setting for visualizing the movement of Asian American communities across USA for this particular HYPHEN issue’s theme – road trip. Your eyes don’t know where to start, and part of the discovery is like a journey, a road trip.

This report was originally published in HYPHEN Magazine Issue 15: Road Trip in Fall 2008.
