Census Data Mapper | Life of Quality | Scoop.it

"This web mapping application provides users with a simple interface to view, customize, save and print thematic maps of the United States, using data from the 2010 Census.  The beta version contains a set of 2010 Census data relating to age and sex, population and race, and family and housing in the United States by county or equivalent entity."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, January 23, 2013 9:20 AM

This month the U.S. Census Bureau has released the beta version of a very nice online mapping tool to display the 2010 data.  The mapper will create PDF versions of any map produced online (file sizes from 20-55KB) and the user can export the raw data to Excel.  While the user is more limited in how to display the data than they would using a GIS, this is a simple way to explore some of the basic census information.

mmm data. This tool is really useful for anyone planning on servicing an area with grown food. You can see the demographics of your chosen geographical area quickly.

THERE ARE MASSIVE AND DISTURBING ETHICAL, ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEALTH CONCERNS THAT MAKE THE INTRODUCTION OF GMO SALMON (OR ANY ANIMAL) HIGHLY CONTROVERSIAL AND THEY NEED TO BE FULLY ADDRESED BEFORE INTRODUCTION INTO THE HUMAN FOOD CHAIN.

 

You Should know that this was pushed through as a new "Animal Drug Application" NOT as "Consumer Food

>>>>>Reuters, Dec 24, 2012 FDA CLOSER TO APPROVING BIOTECH SALMON, CRITICS FURIOUS  http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/12/21/us-usa-fish-gmo-idUSBRE8BK16O20121221?feedType=RSS&feedName=healthNews

Critics say the new salmon is a "dangerous experiment" considered as a new "animal drug application"not food, and have pressured the FDA to reject it. They say the FDA has relied on outdated science and substandard methods for assessing the new fish. "We are deeply concerned that the potential of these fish to cause allergic reactions has not been adequately researched," said Michael Hansen, a scientist at the Consumers Union.
