.. TIGER 2022 digital map database (annual update) released October 2022
October 2022 .. the Census Bureau TIGER digital map database, released annually, is a set of shapefiles and related files (details below) that provide a unique resource to map and geospatially analyze geography covering the U.S. wall-to-wall. Use these geographic data resources with the ProximityOne CV XE GIS desktop and the Visual Data Analytics (VDA) Web GIS -- a resource of ProximityOne and Tsukasa Consulting (Osaka, Japan).

The Census Bureau TIGER 2022 digital map database was released in October 2022. The 2022 TIGER/Line Shapefiles contain current geographic extent and boundaries of both legal and statistical entities for the states, D.C., Puerto Rico and island areas. This vintage includes boundaries of governmental units that match data from the surveys that use 2022 geography (e.g., the 2022 American Community Survey). TIGER files contain only geographic data. Use the Demographic Economic Data Explorer (DEDE) to extract subject matter data and integrate into your downloaded TIGER shapefiles. Make thematic pattern maps.

The Census Bureau TIGER shapefiles contain data that can be used to represent different types of point, line, and polygon geography covering the U.S. earth surface. More about TIGER. The TIGER shapefiles, and related derivative products, play an important role in wide-ranging geospatial analyses and decision-making information solutions. Warren Glimpse, founder of ProximityOne, developed the Columbia, MO GBF/DIME file used as the prototype for the TIGER/Line program and is developer of CV XE GIS desktop and Web-based GIS applications/tools that facilitate use of the TIGER/Line data with other wide-ranging data in applications such as pattern/trend analysis, geospatial processing and location-based operations.

The 2022 TIGER/Line Shapefiles contain current geographic extent and boundaries of both legal and statistical entities, like census tracts, for the U.S. This vintage includes boundaries of governmental units that match the data from the surveys that use 2022 geography (e.g., the 2022 American Community Survey). In addition to geographic boundaries, the 2022 TIGER/Line Shapefiles also include geographic feature shapefiles and relationship files. Feature shapefiles represent the point, line, and polygon features in the MAF/TIGER System (e.g., roads and rivers). Relationship files contain additional attribute information users can join to the shapefiles. Both the feature shapefiles and relationship files reflect updates made in the database through May 2022.
