Where are your users?

I saw this graphic on Gizmodo and it made me think:
Manhattan’s Population By Day vs Manhattan’s Population By Night

I thought that it would b very interesting to see library user populations in this kind of data visualization. How about plotting the zip or postal codes of your library cardholders on to a map of your community? Does it relate to your branch structure, or not? Do you see differences in daytime commuter and home use? How about plotting local schools into the mix . . .?
This is apparently not too hard using mashups with Google Maps.
Interesting, eh?
