DataShine - another Census visualisation and mapping tool...

CASA involved as always...

DataShine is another opportunity to access data from the Census 2011.
There are some good opportunities for filtering and displaying the data in various ways.


Thanks to Oliver O'Brien for the lead to DATASHINE. This map below, for example, focusses on properties that are usually empty.
This is Windermere in the Lake District, and the red colour tells you that the houses are mostly empty, which means that they are second properties. What impact does this have on those communities ?
Which other areas have lots of red properties ?

This would fit nicely with the enquiry in Chapter 10 of my book 'Fieldwork through Enquiry'.



You could also use it to create mystery type questions. E.g. which religion is shown in red in these cities ?


Use the tool or your knowledge of the Midlands to find out the answer...
