8 New US Google Maps Mashups and Mapplets

US Census Bureau Demographics Mapplet:

Ducky Sherwood has turned her US Census Mashup into a Google Mapplet! Add this mapplet directly to your Google Maps view and follow her suggestions to combine it with other mapplets:
  • Combine it with the Chicago Transit Maps to see that the lines appear racially segregated
  • Combine a view of population density with the Sea Level Rise Mapplet to see just how much trouble we're in if the sea level rises a bunch
  • Combine a view of % 5 to 17 or of % married with kids plus a real estate mapplet to see where there are houses for sale in areas with lots of playmates for your kids
