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.

By mashing these two APIs (http://www.meetup.com/meetup_api/, http://www.census.gov/developers/data/) together, community builders can identify groups and leadership/influencers that exist within areas of interest. Hopefully enabling a sort of distributed knowledge management system. ...more »
