Heat map shading for county/state maps

+1 vote
Has there been any discussion around being able to show a heat map on certain maps? For example for a given US state could there be some kind of shading to show which counties have more (or less) concentration of caches?

Interesting idea but the 'concentration' (number of caches per unit area, most likely) will have to consider terrain as well. In a hill or mountain region, even heavily populated counties could take a long time to complete.
This request was specific to each individuals count of caches found and not intended to address elevation.  I have seen heat maps as part of GSAK statistics and was curious of such was discussed/considered for Project GC statistics.
Are you thinking of something like a "Number of Caches per square mile" or something. That would be an interesting map.
Was thinking like number of found caches per state or county maps.
Are you referring to the number of caches found in a geographic area by anyone in total. For example, Florida has X number of caches that have been found by X number of people.
