Power of Combining Maps with Data

TIGER 2023 Digital Map Database
    .. resources to build maps and perform geoanalytics
    .. TIGER 2023 digital map database (annual update) released December 2023

January 2024 .. 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 following graphic illustrates use of VDA Web GIS with the MetroDynamics project to query/show "W Sunset Blvd" in Los Angeles County (371 street segments) highlighted in green; see pointer. Table shows tabular view of road segments. This application uses the TIGER-based roads/edges layer, part of this GIS project.

The Census Bureau TIGER 2023 digital map database was released in December 2023. The 2023 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 2023 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.

Augmented TIGER 2023 Streets Database

The 2023 Streets Digital Map Database (SDMD) is an augmented version of the TIGER 2023 streets (edges) shapefile. The SDMD covers the U.S. and states. The SDMD includes all records and fields from the TIGER 2023 database.

The Edges dbf record “fullname” field is reduced from 100 to 50 characters. The ZIP code/ZCTA code left and right is updated as sourced right and left side address file. The right and left side block code are included in the streets record.

When, where possible, the SDMD has primary names added and street address ranges updated. New, modified records, street segments, are add reflected updates not included in the TIGER 2023 data.

The 2023 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 2023 geography (e.g., the 2023 American Community Survey). In addition to geographic boundaries, the 2023 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 2023.
