Interactive maps comparing the 2000 and 2010 Census

Steven Romalewski pointed us to a really great map put together by the Center for Urban Research, out of the Graduate Center of CUNY.

Visualizing a Changing Region, block by block

While it does not cover the entire state of New Jersey, it does cover a large chunk and a majority of the population in the state. The analysis dovetails nicely with our research studying land use changes over time. It is also a really slick, well designed interface. They spent the effort customizing OpenLayers to get the slider interface to work just right, and I think it adds a new element to exploring and comparing data from two different time periods.
