Maptube Density

University College London's Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis has created a free resource for mixing and mashing maps together. Moving forward from separate maps the resource allows shared maps to be overlayed to compare data visually.

The following map is an example, utilising google and demographic data to show population density in Birmingham.

The main principle of MapTube is that shared maps can be overlayed to compare data visually. For example, to see a map of the London Underground overlayed on top of a map of population, go to the search page and enter the keywords "tube" and "population". Then click on the two relevant maps to add them. They will be displayed when you click on "View.

A more detailed view of the above map is show below.
