Census, mapped

The site's getting hammered right now, but in a couple of days, it'd be worth your while to check out gCensus, a nice hack that combines Google Maps with the 2000 US Census.

Find the total number of people and houses at the county level, just by clicking through the map interface.

It's still a bit primitive, but it's fairly easy to imagine how useful applications like this could be to researchers and practitioners alike.

Not to mention educators and students...
