PolicyMap free trial: link geospatial data to health and social issues
Friday, March 3, 2017 - 15:00 to Monday, April 3, 2017 - 15:00
Students and researchers want tools to link geospatial data to health and social issues. Tulane University Libraries have a trial license to PolicyMap, an online mapping tool made for non-social science, non-geography learners which enables access to data about U.S. communities and markets. Data sources include BRFSS, CDC (6), CMS, DHS Immigration Yearbook, EPA(6), FEMA(2), HUD(18), NCHS(5), USDA(9). Our trial extends through April 3.
