Abstract or Description
This atlas of Maine depicts the change in population from 2000 to 2010. The population difference for over 500 towns of Maine was computed. The change in township population ranged from -967 to 2240 people. Green indicates a decrease in population, and red indicates an increase in population. An adjusted equal interval was used to encompass the entire range and to clearly classify the breaks in population change. The map also outlines major cities, railroad, routes, highways, and counties.
Metadata includes the Minor Civil Divisions/ Census County Division – Census 2000 and the Minor Civil Divisions/ Census County Division – Census 2010 from Maine Office of GIS. From Colby College Environmental Studies Program ES 212 course catalogs, the metadata also includes the hillshade image and the shapefiles for railroads, routes, highways, major roads, and counties. This map is projected on a transverse mercador with a coordinate system of NAD 1983 UTM Zone 19.
