Google Maps of the Australian Census

Australian website .id has released a Demographic Resource Centre that provides a number of Google Maps of data from the 2011 Australian census.

The census data is organised into a number of categorised areas, 'Community Profiles', 'Population Forecasts', 'Economic & Workforce' and 'Social Atlases'. Under each section users can select geographical areas and explore the census data displayed on a Google Map.

Users can interact with the data via the Google Maps interface and also download selected items as tables, images or even full reports. Only a partial coverage of Australia is currently available, in those areas where .id has been funded by individual councils.
