I was delighted to invited to discuss the importance of GIS and geospatial technologies in education at NEARC's GIS Educator's Day.  Earlier this year I gave a presentation at Brown University for the Choices Program on a related topic (so forgive some of the topical overlap).  This slideshare document has hyperlinked slides so you can access the digital resources mentioned in the talk if you wish.

Census Data Mapper

Census Data Mapper | Chris' Regional Geography |

"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."

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.
