2010 Census on Google Maps

Moonshadow Census Maps 2010

Last month Moonshadow released a great Google Maps application to visualise the 2010 New Jersey census data. The company have now released apps to visualise the census data for the states of New Jersey, Maryland and Oregon.

These Google Map based apps allow users to closely examine the census data returns in each state. Using the applications you can set filters, colors and generate heat maps. You can display census block lines, as well as County lines, Congressional, State House and State Senate districts. You can even zoom down to the census block level and download the actual census data for a block.

More state maps will follow in the coming days and weeks as additional block level data becomes available from the US Census Bureau.
