"The CommonCensus Map Project is redrawing the map of the United States based on your voting, to show how the country is organized culturally, as opposed to traditional political boundaries. It shows how the country is divided into 'spheres of influence' between different cities at the national, regional, and local levels."

I wrote to the author asking about the possibility of saving the boundaries he derived in a GIS-compatible format. He replied that it is "non-trivial", but to keep an eye on the sight for the next few months.

He has also updated the map; it is now based on 16,000 votes, rather than the 8,000 that it was yesterday.
