Real estate site Movoto used data from Forbes to find the richest American in each state. Some names you'll recognize: Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, several Walton heirs. Others aren't as famous. You can see an interactive version with links to each fantastically wealthy person's Wikipedia page over on

The Afternoon Map is a semi-regular feature in which we post maps and infographics. In the afternoon. Semi-regularly. Thanks to Movoto for sending this one over.
