PolicyMap Standard

Vendor: PolicyMap

PolicyMap is an online data and mapping tool that enables government, commercial, non-profit and academic institutions to access data about communities and markets across the US. Use it for research, market studies, business planning, site selection, grant applications and impact analysis.

PolicyMap is geared toward non-GIS experts who want to analyze large amounts of data quickly and produce maps, tables, charts and reports. PolicyMap allows you to focus on analyzing data in the classroom - not collecting it or learning how to use mapping software.

A PolicyMap site license includes data collection of 40,000+ up-to-date indicators on demographics, lending, housing, income and spending, education, demographics, jobs, health, federal programs, and much more.

Users can do the following with PolicyMap:
  • Generate maps and tables to easily incorporate into papers, reports and presentations
  • Search by address, geography, census tract, congressional district or create custom regions for unique analysis
  • Compare data across geographies or view trends over time
  • Find communities meeting up to 3 criteria on a map
  • Download select datasets as csv files
  • Rank geographies across an indicator
  • Upload your own point level data
  • Create topical reports by predefined region, radius, or your own custom-drawn area

Lyrasis has negotiated a central license with the best possible terms. Participating institutions placing new orders will be asked to agree to abide by the terms at that time.
