Florida Maps the Census with Bing Maps

Florida_0 The State of Florida has found an innovative way to map out their census results. Florida is using Bing Maps Platform to visualize tons of information they’re gathering as part of the national census taking place right now (fill out your census info!). The Florida House Census Validator is a (Bing) map-based Silverlight application drawing information such as counties; Congress, Senate and House districts; census tracts and blocks; but more importantly where Census information has been received and missed.

The instructions on the Florida Census Instructions page provide a full description of how the application works and what people need to do to us it, so instead of copying all of it I link you to it.
