Gifted and Talented, Especially in District 2

Using Gifted and Talented test data posted by InsideSchools, I created a map that shows the concentrations of aspiring G&T Kindergartners in New York City. The numbers next to each dot represent the district in which the student lives. Scroll over the dots to get the percentage breakdown of the number of students that qualified for district G&T programs, citywide G&T programs, and who scored in the 99th percentile on the test. The gray layers under the map correspond to the median household income of those zip codes. No surprise here that the largest number of G&T test takers resided in the most wealthy districts - but districts 15 and 30 seemed to also do well. As always, I would love your feedback on how to improve this map.
