I am trying to gather the total population of Pittsburgh and overlay it onto a Google Map. I took the Census Tract .shp files from the U.S. Gazetteer Files for 2010 and put them in a fusion table and then ran the census API for the total population
Then I took that information and uploaded it into another google Fusion table and linked the tract information letting me pull in the population numbers and link it to the XML data.
I have my outcome hung on Codepen ("messing with census tracts and google map").
My question is: How accurate is this? I ask because when I click on the polygons some of the population numbers seem really low for the size of the area.
