Current Version

  • Food Access Research Atlas Data File Excel icon (16x16)
    Note for GIS users: The Atlas is based on 2010 census tract polygons. To use the underlying Atlas data in a GIS, the data from this spreadsheet needs to be joined to a census tract boundary file. With ESRI software, users should have access to the tract layer on ESRI's "Data and Maps" data distribution. For users of other software, tract boundaries can be downloaded directly from the Census Bureau's Cartographic Boundary Files.
  • Food Access Research Atlas Documentation PDF icon (16x16)
