Distribution of Mechanical Turkers in the US

A couple of weeks ago our friends at Techlist published one of their visualizations of the distribution mechanical turkers of the US.  They had chosen very large icons for each turker and it was hard to understand the general distribution. I took their XML file and read it in R and generated a csv file in R. The following visualization is produced in Tableau and might be more clear than their Google map visualization (h/t to techlist of their dataset)
