The University of Virginia's Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service has created a racial map of the United States.

The map shows one dot for every person in the U.S and is color-coded to show racial diversity.

The researchers who put the map together say that zooming into the cities will offer a new perspective on the geographic distribution of racial groups.

"You can immediately see it." says Dustin Cable, a research associate with the Weldon Cooper Center who worked on the project. "You can actually dig down deep to specific neighborhoods, block by block and see the racial composition of this end of the street versus that end of the street. It's really powerful."

Data from the 2010 census was used to create the map.
