-- Mapping & Geographic Information System Resources
This section has been updated. See Hawaii 2014 GIS.
This section provides access to mapping and geographic information system (GIS) resources to facilitate demographic analysis using Hawaii data and geography described in related sections (demographic profiles and high school complex areas).
Using a desktop GIS is the only practical way to flexibly examine multiple types of political and statistical area geographies ... changing zoom levels, changing layer positions, changing line styles, changing label styles, etc. The CV XE GIS HI2012 project and fileset has been developed to provide this capability. The project fileset includes all of the relevant layers to view/examine Hawaii high school complexes, cities/places, counties, census tracts, census block groups, census blocks and ZIP code areas. The project includes intersection-to-intersection road/street detail.
Install the CV GIS software and HI2012 project fileset on your computer.
