This Interactive Map Shows Exactly How Much Daylight Saving Time Affects You

Daylight saving time always causes a pretty sudden shock to our internal clocks, but if you’ve every wondered exactly how much it changes things, cartographer Andy Woodruff created an interactive map that shows just how many sunless evenings (and mornings) you get.

Daylight saving time has a pretty big impact on sunrises and sunsets across the country, but the effect isn’t even across time zones. For example, the sun rises about 40 minutes earlier in New York than it does in Detroit. So, to illustrate the effect of daylight saving time, Woodruff created a bunch of different visualizations alongside an interactive map you can play with yourself. He shows how the country would look with daylight saving time abolished (nicer sunrise times) as well as if it were in effect all the time (dark sunrise times and late sunset times).

This knowledge certainly isn’t enough to get over Seasonal Affective Disorder, but at least it gives you a better visual of exactly what the days are like.
