maps of recession


Not sure where to have posted this, if it's in the wrong area, my apologies. A while back there was some fantastic (not in a good way) maps of the recession. Darkened areas highlighting plant closures and job losses and what have you. By any chance, who did those articles and where were those maps originally seen from? If they were made by the author, can I borrow them? I am also planning on linking to such articles that originally had them. Thank you very much.
