PolicyMap is constantly updating data, and it can be hard to keep track of what’s new. Here’s a list of the datasets that have been updated over the past month.
County and city level crime data from the FBI is an oddly complicated dataset to process. From ASCII art to a lack of identifiers, there are a number of obstacles that need to be overcome to display the data on a map.
If you have a list of addresses, it can be incredibly useful to find underlying geographic data for these addresses. This data might be neighborhood demographic or income conditions, or government eligibility indicators, like NMTC or CRA eligibility. This can be done easily in PolicyMap.
To help users find the data indicators they need, PolicyMap now has a search bar for data. You now have the choice whether to browse data in our menus, or go straight to what you need by typing it in.
Place matters when it comes to health. Where someone is born and where they live can be the most significant factors in determining their overall level of well-being. To help users understand the health landscapes of their communities, PolicyMap has created a new Community Health report.
