Trial access: PolicyMap with GIS Mapping


Himmelfarb Library has a trial during February for PolicyMap.  

PolicyMap offers easy-to-use online mapping with data on demographics, real estate, health, jobs and more in communities across the US.    Here’s a sample of what you can do with PolicyMap:

Instructors may also want to consider how PolicyMap could be used in instruction.   One example is provided by Dr. Anne Hewitt from Seton Hall University who uses PolicyMap with her students to analyze vulnerable populations.
You can access PolicyMap from on-campus locations or from off-campus locations via GW’s VPN.
Please provide feedback on PolicyMap to Laura Abate (!
