Second Generation Initiative
CSDA and Lewis Mumford Center Joint Mapping Project --- 2000+
A principal Public-Infrastructure Core activity continues with the ongoing development of 2000+, CSDA's web-based GIS project designed to provide easy access to the most up-to-date social, economic, and demographic characteristics of U.S. counties, including the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Surveys. A complement to 2000+ is our creation of a web-based GIS for post-2000 changes in metropolitan area boundary definitions. This project is slated for release in 2008.
