GE-Census Explorer is a beta freeware tool. This program doesn't need to be
installed, just make a folder, unzip it and run it. contains the executable file (GECensus.exe) and an index file (census.zdb)

Feel free to report any bugs/comments!

a) This program needs to have access to the Internet to query the census database
b) This program creates temporary files (make sure it is in a folder, not your desktop)
c) You must have Google Earth installed on your computer (Tested on GE Free version
4.0.2091 and last versions)

A web version will be soon online.

This program (with minimum modifications) can be used to explore any other database. If
you are from another country,  you have a Census dataset and you would like to share it,
use the contacts page and let me know it.
