I develop for my career, but I also develop for fun, and whenever I think it can solve a problem I'm having. This has lead me to create side projects, such as Rental Map and BusTimes, among others.

Canadian Population Pyramids Screenshot

2012

Canadian Population Pyramids is a Web-based visualization that allows users to explore the 2011 Canadian Census, Age-Sex data set. A study region, shown as the filled in region, can be selected, and then compared to the comparison region, shown as a line. Different years of age can then be hovered over to see the exact number of individuals of that age, the number of male and females, and the percentage of the population for the specified regions.

This work was done with Lars Grammel.

This tool is available on the web now at population-pyramid.herokuapp.com.

The example shown above is Whistler, BC compared to Qualicum Beach, BC.
