Kenyan Demographics on Google Maps
Demographic Kenya is a really nice example of how to present geographical and demographic data using the Google Maps API and Fusion Tables.
The application allows the user to visualise demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the population in Kenyan counties using data collected in the 2009 national census. The data can be accessed via four main categories, Population, Education, Environment and Housing. Each category includes a number of sub-categories.
When you select a sub-category from the map sidebar the chosen data is automatically added to the Google Map and can also be viewed in a graph beneath the map.
