help using these resources

August 2019 .. resources for updated geographic reference and statistical mapping and geography for routing logistics and optimization .. The Census Bureau TIGER/Line is a continuously updated geographic database used for geographic reference and geospatial processing of data from various Census statistical programs including the decennial census Census 2010 and American Community Survey (ACS). The public use version of TIGER is released annually that includes updates developed during the year. ProximityOne integrates the TIGER geographic updates in the Digital Map Database. Warren Glimpse, founder of ProximityOne, developed the GBF/DIME used as the prototype for TIGER/Line development.

This section has been updated. See TIGER 2019

Accessing & Using TIGER Files
Download and integrate TIGER files into your GIS application using the ProximityOne CV XE GIS GeoGateway feature. Create maps structured to meet your objectives. See more information about TIGER file availability and access below in this section.

2017 Shapefiles and Datasets Related to TIGER
Shapefiles and datasets derived from or related to TIGER 2016 include many types of geography and data. The data are developed in the form of shapefiles and dbase files that may be used directly with the ProximityOne CV XE GIS software at no fee. Perform wide-ranging mapping and geospatial analysis applications using these GIS resources. See more about mapping statistical data.

- Starbucks locations (red markers) shown to illustrate use/integration of address-based data.
- metro counties are shown using the counties shapefile

TIGER 2017 File Structure & Availability
TIGER 2017 files may be accessed using the ProximityOne CV XE GIS GeoGateway feature. See these details about using the GeoGateway operations.

The interactive shown below provides reference information about TIGER 2017 file availability that may be useful. The table contains a record/row for each type of available TIGER 2017 file. The files are organized into three types as shown in the left column: Boundary (polygon/area shapefile), Point-Line (point or line shapefile), File (dBase file). The type of geography is described in the Description column, Each of the file types is available for the U.S., State or state-county as shown in the rightmost three columns. The file availability columns shown the file name or file name template for the specific geographic availability level and type of file. For State availability, the code "st" is a placeholder for the state FIPS code. For State-County availability, the code "stcty" is a placeholder for the state FIPS code+county FIPS code.

For example, Census Block shapefiles are available as state structured shapefiles (tl_2017_st_tabblock10.shp). For the state of Florida (FIPS code 12), the file name is tl_2017_12_tabblock10.shp.

About TIGER/Line
TIGER/Line shapefiles are created from the Census Bureau's TIGER (Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing) database of selected geographic and cartographic information. TIGER is used by the Census Bureau to support the mapping and related geographic activities required by the decennial and economic censuses and statistical survey programs. TIGER/Line shapefiles are available for public use and are typically used to provide the digital map base for GIS (Geographic Information System) and mapping applications.

TIGER/Line files are digital, vector-based point, line and polygon shapefiles and related files. TIGER/Line shapefiles do not contain any demographic or other subject matter data though wide-ranging subject matter data can be knit-together with the shapefiles.

TIGER/Line files are digital, vector-based point, line and polygon shapefiles and related files. TIGER/Line shapefiles do not contain any demographic or other subject matter data though wide-ranging subject matter data can be knit-together with the shapefiles.
