Visualizing demographic data used to involve simple charts and thematic maps.  Now, new platforms and advanced algorithms have pushed the limits of data display.  Dashboards and interactive maps allow large volumes of data to be easily digested by users.  New methods are being developed to illustrate margins of error and complex statistical concepts. Infographics and mobile applications help bring demographic information of the public.  This poster session emphasizes new and innovative ways to visualize Census data as well as challenges and lessons learned from translating complex Census data into visual and analytic products.
