This project shows methods of mapping surname data from 1940 in Nova Scotia, based on voter lists. The names were mapped in ArcMap to create a hard copy map and ArcGIS Online application, while a CSV database was loaded onto CartoDB to use with a Leaflet template, allowing users to query surnames and see their distribution. The idea was inspired by an interactive map of Irish surname data. The data for this project was transcribed from Ancestry.ca.
