Emory University researchers yesterday launched the most detailed interactive map to date that shows the distribution of people in the United States (down to the county level) who are infected with HIV, Wired reports. The map was created using Google Maps and uses HIV surveillance data compiled by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2008. The launch coincides with the 30-year anniversary of the CDC's first report on the mysterious illness now known as AIDS, which will be celebrated this Sunday.
