Access: CD ROM [232]
Description:
What is CensusMapper? CensusMapper is a geographic information system designed to make maps and tabular reports of historic U.S. Census and related data. Unlike GIS software, CensusMapper has pre-loaded quality assured/quality controlled data available for immediate analysis and a pre-defined set of mapping and statistical tools to process it. No data acquisition and validation, GIS technicians, or graphic artists are necessary to produce publication quality results. Raw data are drawn primarily from the U.S. Census of Population and Housing, the Census of Agriculture, and the Bureau of Economic Analysis of the US Department of Commerce spanning over five decades from 1960 to 2003. Additional data are drawn from various public and private sources. Raw data inputs consist of counts that have been normalized by area or population and selected so that output variables have consistent or comparable definitions through time. Normalized variables calculated by the Bureau of the Census have been re-calculated from parallel tables of counts after geographic fitting to modern political boundaries. Geographic coverage includes all States, Counties and Census tracts within the United States. Historic data have been adjusted to match state, county, and tract boundaries as defined by the Bureau of the Census in 2000. CensusMapper includes easy to use query, classification, mapping, statistical, and reporting tools to produce publication quality graphic output and quality assured/quality controlled tabular data.

For reprojection, here are some important notes: For the most accurate datum transformation, use the NTv2 grid shift files distributed by NRCan (they are included with some commercial software packages such as FME and the Data Interoperabilty Extension in ArcToolboxes. As well, you cannot perform a transformation directly from NAD27 to WGS84, you need to go to NAD83 first. --> from S.W. City of Toronto's Geospatial Competency Centre. Land use can be found in the Municipal Address Points layer.
