2010 U.S. Census Blocks DVD
The 2010 U.S. Census Blocks DVD is now available for the entire USA.
The 2010 U.S. Census Blocks Data DVD is packed with information about the US population and is essential for making accurate location-based decisions. The product has been updated to reflect the latest 2010 boundaries and US data.
The CD contains a nationwide area database with over 11 million Census Blocks and 2010 Census demographic data. Blocks are the smallest area for which the US Census Bureau collects information, and they are a subdivision of Census Block Groups and Tracts.
You will be able to answer questions such as "How many potential customers live within half a mile of my store?" or "In which location should we expand our market?"
Included are 2010 Census counts for 147 fields that include total population, age, gender, race and ethnicity, and also total housing units broken down by whether they are vacant or occupied.
Price: US$795. Place your order online at the Caliper Store.
Using Themes to Show More Than One Field of Data for Points on a Map
Maptitude 6.0 provides many tools that allow you to thematically visualize and differentiate your data (see the training video). These include thematic maps and selection filters.
The Map Theme tools support several types of theme on each map layer, allowing data to be categorized based on more than one field, such as revenue by store type.
The following steps walk you through this task:
1. Work through the Tech Tip in the August 2010 Maptitude Newsletter. Once you have completed these steps, you will have applied a pattern theme to a point layer of your data.
2. Choose Map-Color Theme from the menu; choose the Field you want displayed in the legend; choose List of Values as the method for category/type data, or Optimal Breaks for numeric data; choose a number of classes, and click the Style tab. Click Next >> on the style tab to choose the Color Set that you prefer.
3. Click OK. Each location is represented as both a color and a letter in the map, which is also listed in the legend with the corresponding feature name/identifier.
4. In the Display Manager, click on the plus symbols for Your Data layer to view the Theme styles. You can click on each theme class style icon to change individual styles.
