3D Map Visualizes the U.S. Economy

This is a 3D visualization of the GDP by metropolitan area, seen below. The higher the cone rising out of the map, the greater the GDP in that area. In analyzing the data, we found that the top 20 metropolitan areas represent over 52% of the total GDP in the United States.

The top 5 states contributed 40% of the overall GDP for the United States as follows:

California: $2.11 trillion, 13% of overall GDP

Texas: $1.46 trillion, 9.5% of overall GDP

New York: $1.28 trillion, 8.4% of overall GDP

Florida: $769 billion, 4.8% of overall GDP.

Illinois: $680 billion, 4.3% of overall GDP.

The largest metropolitan areas contributed the greatest amount of GDP for the country. According to our analysis, the top 20 metropolitan areas contributed over half of the United State's GDP. The New York metropolitan area contributed nearly 10% to the GDP by itself. In terms of a breakdown by state, the top 5 states contributed around 40% of the entire country's GDP. California alone contributed over 13% of the total GDP for the country.
