Where Have the Candidates Been in Iowa?

The Politico has an interactive map following where the presidential candidates (scroll down to Tracking the Candidates map and click either Republicans or Democrats) have traveled to in Iowa. The data is shown on a county level. No cities or town are displayed on map so one needs another map of Iowa to geolocate population centers.

By studying the map one can tell the battle for Iowa is focusing on the capital city of Des Moines. The southwest is being ignored and the eastern Mississippi River coast is only receiving nominal attention

Maybe the candidates are just staying near major interstate highways so they can get in and out of Iowa as quickly as possible... I mean it is Iowa.
