Wazimap is a Django application for exploring census and other similar data. It makes it easy to understand a place through the eyes of the data, and to explore data across a range of places. It is most suited for census data but can easily be used with other data that is similarly focused on places in a country.

Check out Wazimap South Africa and Wazimap Kenya to get an idea of what Wazimap is about.

Wazimap is a fork of the excellent Censusreporter project which was funded by a Knight News Challenge grant. You can also find Censusreporter on GitHub.

Wazimap builds on Censusreporter and makes it easier to re-use. Wazimap was originally built by OpenUp with the support of Media Monitoring Africa. It is maintained by OpenUp.
