Adding Data

Updated by PolicyMap

Data can be accessed from the categories above the map. To add data, select a category, navigate the menu or sub-menu and select the data layer. Alternatively, use the Search Data tool to find data by keyword(s).

Learn more about each data layer on our website at the Our Data page.

The data menus contain three types of data: Boundaries, Data Layers and Data Points.

  • Data Layers Indicators shown as thematic or choropleth maps; areas shaded in a darker color represent the higher amount or percentage, and areas in a lighter shade are the opposite end of the range.
  • Data Points Point or address level datasets, displaying icons for each location. Point datasets will have unique filtering and coloring coding options.
  • Boundaries Display the borders for geographies like zip code, counties, cities or others. Users can remove the geography labels or custom the color, width, and line types.
