USDA Food Atlas and Michelle Obama’s LETS MOVE campaign kickoff

I wish there was something like this for international development:

http://www.ers.usda.gov/FoodAtlas/

What you see is a customizable set of statistics for 50 kinds of food constumption patterns in the US. Shown above is the ratio of fruits/vegetables to prepared foods consumed in parts of the US. It is part if Michelle Obama’s Lets Move campaign, explained at letsmove.gov. http://letsmove.gov/accessing/index.html

If you could merge any two maps (green map overlay red map = orange correlation) this would be even more powerful. (How can ID be lagging behind USDA?)
