Mapping Barcelona's Immigrant Communities

Barcelona TelevisiĆ³ has used Google Maps to show where the different immigrant communities live in Barcelona.

Radiografia de la PoblaciĆ³ Estrangera a Barcelona is a neat Google Map that allows you to explore the immigrant communities in each of the city's neighbourhoods and the concentration of different communities across the city.

Using a drop-down menu in the map sidebar it is possible to select individual countries to show a heat map of where immigrants from the chosen country have settled in Barcelona. Another drop-down menu allows the user to highlight a specific neighbourhood on the map.
