Interactive web map of urban resource use

Two clever MIT grad students have built a web mapping tool that allows you to explore population density, energy usage, and material usage at the neighborhood scale for 42 U.S. cities.

They earn bonus points for providing web map service (WMS) links so you can plug their data into your next geospatial project.
