Alberta Urban Population Density Map


Inspired by the Gomitoli visualization (found here), I made this map to show population density in Albertan cities. I admit it’s not nearly as nice as the Gomitoli example, but it demonstrates nice features such as navigating the underlying Google Map with jQuery sliders and PaperJS buttons, and redrawing the cities in the correct pixel coordinates on zoom/pan. Dots represent 5000 people (red lines connect the dots). The city rectangle area is mostly arbitrary.
