The Canadian Census on Google Maps
Canadian Census is a great way to explore data from the 2011 Canadian census.The visualisation uses Google Maps to allow the user to browse data from the census related to 'families', 'people' and 'languages'.
One very clever feature of the map is that it allows users to explore the data and different granularities depending on the zoom level of the map. Zoom right out and you can explore the data at province level. As you zoom in on the map you can explore the data at ever smaller administrative levels, right down to the smallest census tracts when you zoom right in on the map.
