ANIMATED GIF INFOGRAPHIC

From Jezebel.com comes this animated infographic, done in a GIF File: A listing of the most popular names for girls, state by state, culled from Social Security records from 1960 to 2012. The colors represent the most popular single name for that year.

It would be wonderful to see this done interactively using D3.js, but the GIF file alone gives great visual pleasure.
