Injuries in the U.S. from extreme weather

This weeks assignment we had to take 3 different data-sets of our choosing that we were to find online, and make a map on how they correlate. We were mostly studying coordinate systems and the idea was to see how different coordinate systems affected the maps themselves.

I chose to go with extreme weather patterns in the US.  The above map shows the amount of injuries sustained from the weather events differentiated by color. My favorite coordinate system to show these particular datasets was USA Contiguous Lambert Conformal Conic.
