This paper explores the use of Census data and maps to explore the development of an area over time. This work allows students to develop understanding of the key concept of change over time within a familiar environment. The recent availability of the detailed information from the 1911 Census and the provision of small area data in the 2011 Census has facilitated this use, along with access to large scale historic maps, via Scoilnet maps. ICT skills are developed in the desk-based aspects of the work along with fieldwork skills during the visits to the actual locations studied.
