Maps of same-sex marriage laws

Visual journalists should be wary of using information from groups that have a point of view. Occasionally, an interest group emerges as a reliable, unbiased source of information on a topic.

The Human Rights Campaign tracks laws banning same-sex marriage and laws providing rights for same-sex couples. The group maintains up-to-date maps on the subject here:  http://www.hrc.org/about_us/state_laws.asp. These maps have been used as source material by major media organizations. I am not aware of any opponents of gay marriage who have disputed the validity of the maps.
