Projects

These are some personal projects I’ve worked on lately.

###South African census website

Statistics South Africa doesn’t make census data available on the web for the so-called “main places” and “subplaces”, which correspond to cities, towns, suburbs and villages. So I developed a website to share some of the basic demographic information about these places. There’s one site for the 2011 census, and another site (with not so many features) for the 2001 census.

###Census dot-maps

These maps show the racial distribution of the population in South African cities. See the blog post for more details.

###Election results maps

I developed a “slippy” interactive web interface for exploring the results of South African elections, all the way down to voting district level. Currently it includes the results of the 2009 and 2014 elections. I have also developed a dot density map of the 2014 election which shows a dot for every vote cast.

###Maps for Wikipedia

I’ve produced a lot of maps for use on Wikipedia, mostly related to Southern Africa. There’s a category on Wikimedia Commons with everything I’ve produced.
