East Brunswick, NJ, March 31, 1998 - GeoLytics announces the release of CensusCD+Maps--a demographics and mapping software product combining 50 gigabytes of data with advanced thematic mapping capability. CensusCD+Maps lets anyone create colorful thematic data maps, down to the neighborhood level of census block groups, with no mapping or GIS experience required. All of the data, boundaries, and software to create results are on the one disc. CensusCD+Maps eliminates the hassles of importing data and boundaries required by most mapping software. The one Windows (95, NT, or 3.1x) CD-ROM of CensusCD+Maps provides: - Estimates (1997) & Projections (2002) of Demographics (65 variables for each year) and Consumer Spending (32 product categories for each year) for 5 geographic levels (block group, tract, zip, county & state) - 1990 Census (STF-3) demographics, over 3,400, for each of 375,000+ geographic units including block groups, tracts, and zip codes - Integrated Thematic Mapping with complete boundaries (from Tiger 95) down to block group geographic level. A built-in map viewer creates and displays thematic maps of .DBF files generated by the program. The process is seamless for the end user. Maps are easily customized (themes, colors, ranges, scales, etc.) on the fly. A virtual variable calculator lets user perform mathematical functions (incl. Boolean) then automatically maps results. Viewer exports boundaries in ArcView & MapInfo, and maps as BMP. It thematically maps any imported .DBF file with an appropriate area key. - County Time Series Statistics - 3,000+ variables in 26 categories for all 3,141 US Counties. Data is from US Govt. Agencies on topics such as Federal Spending (AFDC, SSI, Grants, Contracts, Payroll, etc..), Crime (FBI stats), Agriculture, Business (types, earnings, employment, payroll), Banking, Building Permits, Vital Statistics (births, deaths, etc.) and much more. - Historical Census Counts (Total Population 1790 - 1990) by US County - Geocoding of an address to its corresponding census block group to extract neighborhood information. Also allows for radius reporting around a specific address for any number of miles GeoLytics first product, CensusCD 1.1, holds the complete results of the 1990 US Census long form (STF-3), originally issued on 67 CDs. GIS World noted in a March, 1997, review of CensusCD 1.1, "Performance of the demographic queries is outstanding. If all databases of this size running on CD-ROM performed this well, the information systems world would be a much better place." GeoLytics improved its compression technology to guarantee CensusCD+Maps lives up to the same performance standards. GeoLytics sells CensusCD+Maps directly for $249.95 for a single user license; $750 for LAN/CD-Tower license.
