By now you’ve probably heard the April 27 announcement from the Office of Management and Budget: The federal government it shuttering 137 data centers by Dec. 31.
What you may not have seen is how the data center closures affect agencies and states. Below you can view my graphic interpretations of the OMB-provided information. I also encourage you to read my story on the subject, which provides greater context. (See the interactive version of this map.)

The interactive map is great! Thanks for the informative article.
Thanks Laura! I’m glad you find it useful. Since I made this map, Vivek Kundra has also released a map and a blog post on CIO.gov describing the data center closures further. You can read that here: http://www.cio.gov/pages.cfm/page/Cracking-Down-on-Wasteful-Duplicative-Spending
