This is the most user-friendly website I've seen to map economic census data.  This maps the average household income data on top of a Google Maps basemap that can be centered on any place in the United States.  This is a great resource to share with students of just about any age.

Very interesting aspect of our demographics here in Central Falls. Any one with an interest in demographics and the make up our city should take a look a this and compare it to other neighborhoods in Rhode Island. Knowledge is power. Empower yourself!

What would John Snow's famous cholera map look like on a modern map of London, using modern mapping tools?

This brings an updated look using modern geographic technology to this classic map of Snow's study of cholera outbreaks in 19th century London.  There is also a link to the actual data and a debate of the early techniques used.
