How GIS has changed our world

Census Map Tool

The Wall Street Journal has made a free online census mapping application available to the public. You can sign in with either an existing Twitter or Facebook account to use the tool. The mapping application currently loads block level data of population breakdowns by race and ethnicity for the entire United States with Google Maps.

The application has potential to be a useful mapping and educational tool for classrooms.
