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.

Applications shown below make use of a "ccsd.gis" GIS project. The project can be used with VDA Desktop GIS or VDA Web GIS. The project files/data are illustrative only and not intended to document a particular situation.
