Please provide your feedback on PolicyMap before the trial expires at the end of February! We are particularly interested in if and how you might use PolicyMap to support teaching and research.
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:
- Make Maps – explore this example of how mapping is used to illustrated advanced practice nursing data
- Upload your address-level data
- Download data
- Create reports
- Find areas that meet up to 3 criteria
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
