NYC Dept. of City Planning released the 2008 selected facilities and program sites recently. Although I haven’t played with it much, on first glance there’s about 4000 new records and all records now have X & Y values which is something I’m really happy about. The 2005 release has a little more than 1200 un-geocoded records, all of which where in the Parks sub-group.
We are happy to announce that the Columbia Libraries now have access to a new GIS E-resource, SimplyMap. SimplyMap is a web-based mapping application that lets users quickly create thematic maps and reports using demographic, business, and marketing data for the United States. SimplyMap is a web based application; maps created in SimplyMap can be exported as images or as datasets usable in other GIS applications.
