Socio-Ec Reports now include Shapefiles

Your Socio-Ec Reports now include corresponding shapefiles of intersecting Census geographies. Today, your GIS Guru can drop this shapefile into her mapping system for your project—-producing a custom map in less time.

Want to try shapefiles for free?  For November 18, 2009 only, contact Anthony by email or phone at 512-563-8477, and he’ll send you a free shapefile for your project.

    I am interested in acquiring shapefiles which provide an indication of the types of housing/economic development occurring in “environmental” or undeveloped areas. What shapefiles would you recommend? Most notably I am interested in looking at the phenomenon of urban sprawl.

    Great thanks,

    So you’re interested in shapefiles indicating what types of development has occurred in previously undeveloped areas?

    Here’s what I would do.
    1. Find historic aerials and current aerials of my area of interest (ie. the City of Austin).
    2. By comparing the two aerials, you can find regions that were undeveloped on the historic aerials and are developed or developing on the current aerials (i.e. south west Austin).
    3. Then you could draw these regions using the Cubit application to get 2000 Census Housing data.

    I’d also check with the appraisal district and the metropolitan planning organization in your area of interest to see if either agency has development specific shapefiles. Cubit’s shapefiles are of Census geographies only.

    Let me know if you need any other information.
