From January 13, 2020 until the end of May, we have trial access to Social Explorer, a data visualization and mapping tool providing easy-to-use location analysis tools that allow users to create in-depth data maps, reports, and presentations drawing on robust data on demography, economy, health, politics, environment, crime and more from a variety of sources.
Among data sources included are the Decennial Census, American Community Survey (ACS), County Business Patterns, Population Estimates, LEHD, FBI Uniform Crime Report, American election results, Religious Congregations and Membership Study, UK Census, Eurostat, World Development Indicators, and more, many available at detailed geographic levels. Users can also add their own data for visualization.
** OFF-CAMPUS USERS SHOULD FIND THE WTAMU-SPECIFIC POP-UP IN THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER OF THE SCREEN AND CLICK ON EITHER BUTTON IN THAT. **
Training webinars are available three times each week. Anyone can easily register online. (If none of the listed times work, please let us know.)
To judge the value of this as a possible addition to our library subscriptions, it's essential that we hear your judgment. Please let us know what you think.
