The Census Bureau has released three products useful for geographic analysis. These include:
- TIGERweb: a web-based map viewer for boundaries and features stored in the MAF/TIGER geographic database, using 2010 Census geographic boundaries and features
- KML File Prototypes: 2010 Census counties and census tract KML files are available as prototypes; feedback on the type of layers and attributes that should be included is requested by February 28, 2012
- 1992 TIGER/Line Files: zipped into county packages and available on the Census ftp site
For more information or to offer suggestions for additional geographic and cartographic products, contact [email protected].
In addition, FHWA hosted training on using American FactFinder 2 and Data Ferrett. The recordings of these events are posted online, along with several additional documents for Data Ferrett:
