World Wide Webfoot Maps

NOTE The maps all broke when I had to upgrade to a later database revision. One of these days, I will upgrade my code to work with the newer database, but I'm just not into it right now. Partly I think that nobody cares. If you care, let me know, and I'll bump it up on my priority list.

This page links to several of the maps mashup services that I have done. Most of my maps are choropleth maps -- coloured polygons -- and tend to focus on demographic data.

See my blog entries about maps and future plans.


I have done a lot with population-based cartograms -- maps distorted so that the area of a district is proportional to the population of the district.

Old Maps

I made a bunch of maps with the Google Maps framework, but Google started charging more than it made sense for me to pay. I might someday resurrect them with an open-source mapping framework if there is demand, but there is very little demand.

Economic Stimulus

Maps and analyses of the Australian stimulus plan (in collaboration with Maciek Chudek) and the Canadian economic stimulus plan both showed a distinct bias in favor of areas represented by the party controlling the government.


Maps of the US 2000 census and Australian 2006 census (in collaboration with Maciek Chudek) allowed you to examine many demographic attributes at a very fine geographic resolution.

Elections 2008 / Demographics

The Election 2008 / Demographics Map made it easy to see how non-white, and/or young, and/or urban voters voted more for Obama and white, older, rural voters voted for McCain.

Mapeteria (rev 1)

The Mapeteria service let you generate a choropleth map with your own data.
