New Interactive Map: New York City Regional Data Explorer Launches Online
From Gotham Gazette:
Metro Region Explorer [is] an interactive online tool created by DCP’s Planning Labs unit that allows public access to regional economic, housing, and population data and trends.
Metro Region Explorer is an interactive map showing population, housing, and employment trends within the tri-state New York City metropolitan region, and shares key insights about how the region has changed from 2000 to today.
Developed in collaboration between DCP Planning Labs and DCP Regional Planning, this tool will be maintained as part of our ongoing commitment to help the public access and understand information about planning issues affecting NYC and the metro region.
Using data from a range of publicly available sources, the Metro Region Explorer allows you to view socioeconomic characteristics across 7 subregions, 31 counties, and nearly 900 municipalities.
