Parallax View - part the thirteenth [update]

Another week's up, so here are today's numbers:
  >= 1,000 - 361 
100 to 999 - 1,053

Grand total of counties reads at 2,985. Oh joy. Not much territory left to invade. Since the topo map counts are limited to 3 digits, it's impossible to tell (for sure) what's been happening around the 100 to 999 group. The rollover shows 4 digits, but appears to merely reformat the '1K' display. I've sent a message asking for, at least, the rollover to show the exact number, since it has the space. No word yet. All of the other groups, save the bottom, are growing in count, so it seems highly likely that 100 to 999 is too. After all, the >=1,000 count counties don't just appear deus ex machina. And, alas, I've not yet found another source for total counties affected.

The pincer movement continues; red/orange marches NNW from the Deep South and ENE from SoCal/Arizona. Texas, on the other hand, marches due North.

Topo folks did answer my e-mail, and it turns out the exact number is available: click the ellipsis next to a group entry, then click 'open table', which table is annotated with the count. Yippee!
