Maps and Data
- Census Reporter - VERY useful tool for visualizing and accessing Census and American Community Survey data.
- Dexter tool for exporting American Community Survey data for the entire US. I use it to annually update my ACS income data.
- Racial Dot Map (uses blocks - so greater accuracy than the NYT map)
- Mapping America (uses counties and census tracts - less accuracy for race, but also includes income and other maps)
- Compare 2000 and 2010 census - block level. Highest resolution map of census race data (though only includes some of the states).
- Social Explorer (has race at the block group level, several methods of visualization, and color schemes - in the free version)
- Policy Map - a competitor to Social Explorer - lots of Census (and other) data
- American Community Survey - API - by the Census Bureau.
- EJ Screen - EPA's environmental justice map. Includes environmental and demographic data.
Dot Maps on JusticeMap
You can view the dot map layers creaetd by Dustin Cable on JusticeMap.org. These do a better job of handling varying population density than other layers. The downside is that they are cluttered. These work for zoom levels 4-13.
Analysis done with the Spatial Justice Test
TileMill is very useful for generating map tiles (raster format). I recommend getting one of the latest development builds
Texas A&M Geoservices - free geocoder.
Radical Cartography - neat maps
Mbtiles viewer - utility for viewing mbtiles on your computer (with a baseline street map).
