About the Project

Like many projects, the Visual Census started as a vague idea while looking at the vast amount of census data that is made available by the Federal Government. The Census Bureau releases a vast amount of data, but it isn't easy for someone to consume without having prior knowledge of census data. After testing different uses of the data, it was decided that a simple map interface would be good for anyone to read the data.

This project uses OpenLayers, HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery to create an interactive display for the users in any browser.
