  • Interactive Map: Ireland 1850 Census > Family Households by Parish

    This interactive map shows where people of specific surnames lived in Ireland in the 19th century, according to parish records. I scraped a static dataset from the Irish Times website, and built a much more interesting way to view the same information, with additional insights provided by clustering of semi-opaque colored markers. The dataset has 4 pieces of information: latitude, longitude, name of parish and number of family surnames in that parish.
