New York Times: Every City Every Block

From the New York Times: Browse local data from the Census Bureau's American Community Survey, based on samples from 2005 to 2009. Because these figures are based on samples, they are subject to a margin of error, particularly in places with a low population, and are best regarded as estimates.

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? : )

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 »

Point Context

http://grahamimac.com/pointcontext/

 

Paste any point data into Point Context, and it presents a heatmap and provides basic Census data on the average neighborhood for your points.

 

I originally tried to use the API but found that for larger datasets I had to make way too many API calls to get all the tract data I needed. So I downloaded and stored the Census data in my own database.
