Data Analytics Blog
Power of Combining Maps with Data


Accessing & Using Geographic-Demographic-Economic Data
    GeoSpatial Analytics


Join us in the weekly web sessions where we review wide-ranging topics on
  • current and trending geographic-demographic-economic characteristics
  • tools to access & use demographic-economic data with other data
  • using decision-making information & developing insights

One-hour Data web sessions are conducted by Warren Glimpse.
  • Tuesdays 3:00 pm ET; Accessing & Using Demographic-Economic Data
  • Thursdays 3:00 pm ET; GeoSpatial Analytics
      Visual Data Analytics (VDA) Training & Support
  • gain insights into information change, patterns that might affect you
  • see connectivity details below

Who benefits? Anyone who is directly or indirectly engaged in accessing/using geographic, demographic, economic data for management, analysis or decision-making. While we cover many technical details, managers and leaders benefit from understanding what is possible even though perhaps not engaged in daily data development or analytics. Topics are heavily cross-related. The thread of small area demographics runs throughout the sessions, even though the main topic might be on congressional districts or cities/counties. The sessions provide a forum for problem-solving and continuity not found elsewhere.

E-mail us or call (888-364-7656) with questions/help.

.. do for any school district(s)/attendance zone(s)

Alief ISD, TX Study Area

.. click graphic for larger view

Smaller area black boundaries are Census 2020 block groups.
.. these areas are labeled with ACS 2021 5-year (centric to 2019) median household income estimates
Orange boundaries are Census 2010 block groups.
.. these areas are labeled with ACS 2013 5-year (centric to 2011) median household income estimates

There are no annual BG data for 2010 or 2020, or for any specific year since 2000
(a matter of geography in Census/ACS statistical program change).

These ACS estimates provide some insights into MHI comparative level and change during that period,
but based on ACS 5-year estimates.

Most BGs have the same boundary, but many changed over time.
The view shows the data as two layers. The layer on top is the black boundary.

The BG with the pointer is the same area for 2010 and 2020.
The data show that the MHI changed from $34,464 in ACS 2013 dollars to $39,583 in ACS 2021 dollars.

02.09.23. GeoSpatial Analytics: Examining Geographies & Subject Matter
Mapping & GeoSpatial Analysis & Practical Applications
Feb 9, 2023 03:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Meeting link: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/85006479895?pwd=SVJrZHBaZjFaTURTeEZiemFWTzdkdz09
Meeting ID: 850 0647 9895 -- Passcode: 646930
  .. above link & ID the same on Thursdays through December 2023

What we do ... ProximityOne develops and uses tools and data to provide fact-based, independent, non-partisan decision-making information to stakeholders on a wide range topics/issues. We focus on accessing, modeling and analyzing geographic, demographic and economic data to better understand recent trends and project future demographic-economic characteristics. E-mail us or call (888-364-7656) with questions or for help or use the chat/message-us in the lower right on this page.

Many of the topics reviewed here make use of the Visual Data Analytics (VDA) Web GIS. You can use VDA Web GIS to perform these operations, nothing to install. Use companion CV XE GIS for Windows desktop operations. We use CV XE GIS to develop GIS project/filesets then port these for use with VDA Web GIS. VDA Web GIS is developed and maintained by Warren Glimpse/ProximityOne/Alexandria, VA USA and Takashi Hamilton/Tsukasa/Osaka, Japan. Start VDA Web GIS using most any browser.

This section is new, as to content and purpose; an online, instructor led, session every Thursday.
.. it has no end date or term. It is "always" here.
.. it provides support for CV XE GIS, VDA Desktop and VDA Web GIS users
    - demonstration and any question; problem-solving.
.. it provides an organized approach to Learning about GIS & Decision-Making Information
    - for anyone at any level

1. Geographic Information Systems & Decision-Making Information Overview
.. what this is and why it is important

Participation Prerequisites
1.a. Review About GIS
.. nomenclature & concepts
    geographic data: points, lines, polygons
    subject matter data: census, administrative, estimates, survey based, projections
    - microdata vs summary statistics
.. Federal geostatistical system; your assets; evaluating options
.. about projects & options

Getting Started
The section 1.b. information (below) is also covered in the GIS & Decision-Making Information Guide

1.b. Install CV XE GIS & basic orientation to use
Section 1.b. items are not required to participate and benefit but strongly recommended.
    install the CVXE software and US1 Project files before sessions for best results:
    The following two links download a file that you will then start.
    In the terms of use you agree not to redistribute any of these files
    or use the files with other software or applications.
    1.b.1. run CVXE Windows installer (User Group version)
        - if you have CVXE installed, skip this step
    1.b.2 install CVXE US1 GIS Project Files
        - the US1 GIS project installer file requires ~212MB to download
            & occupies ~ 980MB for use by CV XE GIS.
        - this installer will overwrite the existing, default, US1.GIS project.
    To delete the above files delete the c:\cvxe folder if installed with defaults (recommended).

Additional Information
ProximityOne develops geodemographic-economic data and analytical tools and helps organizations knit together and use diverse data in a decision-making and analytical framework. We develop custom demographic/economic estimates and projections, develop geographic and geocoded address files, and assist with impact and geospatial analyses. Wide-ranging organizations use our tools (software, data, methodologies) to analyze their own data integrated with other data. Follow ProximityOne on Twitter at www.twitter.com/proximityone. Contact us (888-364-7656) with questions about data covered in this section or to discuss custom estimates, projections or analyses for your areas of interest.
