Poverty map by age and sex

http://pad.human.cornell.edu/Unlisted/uncertaintymap_fullinfo_api_B17001.cfm

 

I had already created a thematic map application that gave information about the uncertainty surrounding ACS estimates (move your mouse over the counties). This website generates the map using API data requests. A future expansion will include parsing the variables XML file.

Filling DOM elements with Javascript based on custom tags

http://pad.human.cornell.edu/Unlisted/api_json.html Please take a look at the source. What I tried to do is creating a web page using empty DOM elements and fill them later with Javascript and API calls. The Javascript loops through all elements with class='acs5' and I use the HTML5 data-* custom tags to define what value I would like to see in that element. The browser might throw a warning because I violate same-origin ...more »

ACS Choropleth Maps

http://acsmapper.appspot.com/D3 Given the dearth of other live examples, I felt like I should post something, though I haven't been able to do a lot of necessary cleanup and polish. It was nice to be able to pull something like this together with just a few hours of work via the Census API, though.

JQPlot and JQuery JSON chart sample (simple)

http://desertbiz.biz/censussample.html

 

Uses JQPlot plugins. The hardest part was translating array elements. Wish list: remove the word "county" from the table cells...

 

By the way, I am still serious about applying for the telecommute job for the Census Bureau. When will the hiring manager be able to sift through the applications? : )

JQuery/Ajax library

Earlier I mentioned the idea for a library that would take care of filling DOM elements with data. Yesterday I created a github repository for this and committed the beginnings of such a library. To see this library in action I created a couple of examples: http://pad.human.cornell.edu/Unlisted/ACS5API/Example.html This is a table with on the left an explanation of how the right cell is defined. http://pad.human.cornell.edu/Unlisted/ACS5API/Example1.html ...more »

For the .NET Programmer

I have a web app in C# - a simple query tool - that can now serialize the JSON result set for Decennial data into XML. By joining that Xml document to the Concepts metadata from the apivariables.xml, the app allows you to query for up to 4 datasets, and put criteria based on state and county, and to specify a minimum and maximum value filter for the result set. It will display the states and counties that match your ...more »
