Web Mapping

This guide highlights library and internet resources that allow you to create maps online.


PolicyMap is a fully web-based Geographic Information System (GIS) that allows you to easily incorporate the power of geospatial data into decision making. It's fast, efficient and captures data in visually powerful ways through custom demographic maps, tables, reports and our analysis tool, Analytics.

You can map your own data and compare it to the datasets available in PolicyMap. The available data includes demographics, home sale statistics, health data, mortgage trends, school performance scores and labor data like unemployment, crime statistics and city crime rates.

The 3 videos on the right side of the page include a demonstration of PolicyMap, a quick start tutorial and another demonstration showing the power of Analytics.
