Fighting poverty in under-development countries is one of the major goals in the new century. This application provides an interactive choropleth map showing population percent below the poverty line in each district in Pakistan.

This application classifies districts in Pakistan based on the poverty line index and generates a choropleth map. Classification is based on the standard deviation of the index.

I built this application using leaflet web mapping library and javascript and jQuery.

One of the major challenges was the lack of open data about all districts in Pakistan.

Running many new functions and overcoming new challenges is what I am proud of. I also hope that this application can be useful for authorities who want to make Pakistan a better country.

During the development, I learnt lots of things about Pakistan itself. I also tested my skills and learnt some new stuff in programming.

If I can have access to more open data of districts in Pakistan I can develop more useful applications.
