The Rust Belt: Seeking Refuge in Bowling?

Thanks to Rust Wire reader Mark Golbach for pointing out this quirky but interesting map from the Floatingsheep blog:

us_bowling_100113

What do those little dots represent? The relative concentration of listings of bowling alleys in the Google Maps directory, the Floatingsheep tells us, which are heavily concentrated in the Rust Belt. The highest index value is in the Detroit suburb of Southfield, Michigan.

Like the folks at Floatingsheep, however, I have no idea what this means. Interesting though.
