PolicyMap allows you to upload your geographic data into our geodatabase, giving you the ability to display your data via the PolicyMap Data API onto your website. Customers often turn to this solution when they have security or scalability issues to address. Our helpful customer service representatives can walk you through the process. Call us for more information.


  • Data elements can be used to populate your charts, reports, or analytical tools. This solution includes items such as the numeric values of indicators, vector data to form polygons, or information about individual sites on a map.
  • Tiles can used to create the rich, colored thematic layers like the ones you see in PolicyMap. Or overlay our tiles on a Google or Bing map, or other 3rd party map offering.

Both solutions are straightforward to implement, in most cases requiring only a standard request to our server. When data is updated in PolicyMap, the same updates are automatically applied to datasets in the Data API.
