Mapping the 2010 U.S. Census – NYTimes.com. I keep returning to this fine example of web mapping which the NYTimes has created for the 2010 Census results. The content is fascinating and the interface is great in performance (speed) and options. You can’t download data but that’s not the point; you can easily explore the changes in racial, ethnic and population density in the last decade. The US Census Bureau has the 2010 Census data as shapefiles available for downloading as well as many different tallies of new and changed geographic entities but no beautifully rendered interface. That remains the NYTimes’ strength.
