Built on Windows Azure, MyFloridaCensus.gov helps Floridians identify homes, neighborhoods and communities for 2010 Census, supplementing door-to-door canvassing, which ends nationwide July 10.
"MyFloridaCensus is hosted in Windows Azure cloud platform and runs using Silverlight for cross-browser compatibility. With support of Bing Maps interface, collective technology allows visitors to share their experiences with the 2010 Census and build a social user-generated experience around the once-per-decade count. In turn, Florida House provides the U.S. Census Bureau, state and local governments, and citizens with dynamic feedback and visual representations of that feedback. Unlike most traditional government websites, MyFloridaCensus offers Floridians the opportunity to take part in the gathering of information, and thus affords individual citizens the opportunity to speak for the betterment of their communities," explains Microsoft.
