SMALL-AREA GIS BASED CENSUS ANALYSES FOR TRANSPORTATION PROFESSIONALS

Recent Geographical Information System (GIS) program price reductions and the distribution of 1990 Decennial Census data files and ancillary Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (TIGER/Line) files on CD-ROM now allow a broader use of this information by transportation professionals in the private and public sectors. This paper identifies several examples of how "loosely coupled" programs running on a personal computer (PC) platform can be effectively utilized by transportation professionals to conduct a variety of transportation related census based analyses.
