Columbus Metro Biking/Pedestrian Infrastructure Map

So first up to repost from the data loss will be one of the easiest. As mentioned the first time, I wanted to create a map that included the 10-county metro area highlighting every bit of existing, planned and under construction infrastructure involving biking and pedestrian activities. There are some existing maps that show this, but they are not regularly updated and they lack significant detail in what type of infrastructure exists.

Here is the link to the map: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zjN5g-xqXg7o.kmfXTQGVWudU&usp=sharing

The map is still very much a work in progress. I have neither finished the existing infrastructure level or the planned infrastructure level. I update it a bit more almost every day, so keep checking back!

Cool Link of the Day: Living Wage Calculator Map

Interested in knowing how the minimum wage of an area compares to a living wage? Take a look at the map. You can go down to county and metro level. Columbus does well compared to most of the nation, but no minimum wage is enough in any area to equal a local living wage.

Cool Link of the Day: Columbus Less Religious Than Las Vegas?

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/this-is-the-most-godless-city-in-america-2015-03-24?siteid=yhoof2

According to this survey, yes. Columbus has more religiously unaffiliated residents in its metro than does Sin City!

In Ohio, Cincinnati and Cleveland were both ranked several points more religious than Columbus as well.
