OAC on London Profiler
Researchers in the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at University College London have developed a website which maps a range of public sector data for London. The website is called London Profiler and can be accessed at http://www.londonprofiler.org.
Of interest to users of the Output Area Classification is the inclusion of both the SuperGroup and SubGroup data. Additionally, they have developed their own geodemographic classification for London known as LOAC or ‘London Output Area Classification’. A further feature is the ability to add your own data in KML format onto the map. An example has been formalised using the Nestoria property search website. The website is very intuitive with an interface similar to Google Maps.
More information about the website can be found in the following paper:
