Main mapping site

Updated continually. About 600 variables from a several different sources. Use this site to explore neighborhood level trends for the 20-county Atlanta region. This site expresses data in 2010 geography at the census tract level. We also have a "legacy" site that expresses data in vintage 2000 geography. We aren't updating this site anymore, but it still has all sorts of good data to explore! Here is a link to it.

Lifestyle Segmentation with ESRI's Tapestry Segmentation

ESRI’s Tapestry Segmentation classifies neighborhoods into 65 different segments based on their socioeconomic and demographic composition. The initial view, however, summarizes these 65 segments into 12 broad “lifemode” summary groups. The colors represent the 12 broad summary groups, but if you click an area, you will get a link to the predominant lifestyle segment (one of the 65).

ESRI's Tapestry Segmentation

This map, from ESRI, shows the dominant lifestyle segment in a neighborhood based on a variety of socioeconomic and demographic factors. These data are used to typologize neighborhoods based on the tapestry that ESRI developed. It offers a different way to look at neighborhoods.

Mapping Assets Using Google

"Asset mapping" provides another way to spatially understand our environment by putting service providers "on the map". Using this, you can determine if there are sufficient services that are covering your area of interest. Caution is urged, however. As soon as an "asset" map goes live, it is out of date, because places open, close and relocate all the time.
