census maps mapplets

James Macgill prodded me to turn my census maps into a mapplet, and so I finally made a census mapplet.

Most of you are probably wondering what a mapplet is. A mapplet is a Google map that has been encapsulated in a way that makes it easy to combine with other mashups. To see them, go to maps.google.com and select the My Maps tab. You’ll see a list of mapplets next to checkboxes.

I’ve been enjoying playing with combining my demographics maps with other mapplets, like

  • population density + sea level rise
  • various demographics + real estate listings
  • % black + Chcago Transit Authority lines
