I obtained the donor lists for people and businesses supporting the passage of Amendment 2 in Florida in 2008:

Florida Amendment 2 is an amendment made to the Constitution of Florida in 2008. It added Article I, Section 27 to the constitution, which defines marriage as a union only between one man and one woman, and thus bans the creation of similar unions, such as civil unions or same-sex marriage.

The two organizations raising money to PASS Amendment 2 include yes2Marriage and Florida4Marriage. Many were churches but a great many people donated personally to the amendment and supplied their names and addresses as required by law. The information is public.

The data has been complied into a Google Map called "Know Your Neighbor" with no judgement. The goal is to map the people and businesses into an map to create an interactive experience to know your neighbors,

Some are obvious but a few are telling where they stand on the issue of same-sex marriage, It is up to the user to interpret the results.

The link below is a rough draft of the map and I would like input on the best way to present the data.

Please feel free to view and reply.
