02. Clark County GIS Project .. goto top
The Clark County GIS Project is presented more "at the top of the topics" as it knits together selected key data and geography reviewed elsewhere in this document. This GIS project does not include any personally identifiable information. Adding data on students and staff would greatly enhance the utility of these data/tools for authorized users.

The start up view of the Clark County Geographic Information System (GIS) Project using the VDAGIS tools is shown below. This view shows patterns of economic prosperity (ACS2022 median household income) by census tract. Click graphic for larger view that also shows Public Use Microdata (PUMA) boundaries.

02.1. Clark County Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs) .. goto top
PUMAs (click above graphics) are important as they provide the geography for which custom demographic estimates can be developed using Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) data. Develop custom demographic estimates for subject matter not included in the published ACS data. Suppose you want to estimate the number of teachers filtered by selected type of demographic attribute. Do that for PUMAs based on the sample of population data in the PUMS files.

The following graphic shows a further zoom-in of the above graphic with some detail removed. The tract code as a label and $MHI as a label are shown by tract .. the $MHI is $45,115. This graphic illustrates use of the ProximityOne DEDE tool to “get one” to independently access $MHI for that tract; the same, by pointer, $45,115. DEDE, the Demographic Economic Explorer is generally used to develop Excel and GIS files using APIs, accessing larger databases.

03. Using the Demographic Economic Data Explorer .. goto top
The ProximityOne Demographic-Economic Data Exploere (DEDE) was used to develop the ACS 2022 census tracts dataset used in the Clark County GIS project "Tracts ACS22 $MHI" dataset. That file, xls or dbf, can be used in any application. In this case it was integrated into the tracts shapefile. That shapefile was then added to the GIS project. $MHI is only one data item shown in the map. A more extensive set of these data can be examined using the tracts interactive table. DEDE may be used to select subject matter data for many geographies from many Federal statistical programs.

GIS & GeoSpatial Analysis Resources
The remainder of this section provides illustrative view/map graphics for Clark County.
These applications make use of GIS (Geographic Information System) tools and GIS projects that combine geographic (spatial) data (shapefiles) with statistical data. DEDE is often the source of the data integrated into shapefiles for reference and thematic/pattern map development. The two main Visual Data Analytics (VDA) software tools are:
  • VDA Desktop GIS (aka CV XE GIS)
    .. windows-based software
  • VDA Web GIS
    .. access/use with web browser only; nothing to install

VDA tools are developed, maintained and supported by Warren Glimpse/ProximityOne/Alexandria, VA USA and Takashi Hamilton/Tsukasa/Osaka, Japan.
