build an interactive census map

Introduction

Creating an interactive census map is easy using the free geocommons map service. This video tutorial takes you through the process step-by-step. You will download map files from the U.S. Census Bureau Tiger Shapefile Library, download and edit population data from Bay Area Census and merge the two to make an interactive map that you can publish on your site.

 

A step-by-step text version will be posted here soon.
