The Census Interactive Mapping App for Small Area Population Statistics (SAPmap) can be explored on the CSO's interactive visualisation platform CSO Visual

This app allows users to explore census data in a location of interest by using the address search facility or by pinpointing a location on the map. Users can investigate data at different levels of geography by selecting their preferred geographic boundary to access all of the 2022 and 2016 census tables that have been produced for that area.

This page is provided to help users of the Census Mapping app discover the key features of this new mapping application.
