I was intrigued by Geographic Research, a new exhibitor, which was showing their new mapping service. You can display a map of a wide variety of demographic data for an area, such as age distribution, average household income, etc. Their service is sold to libraries and enterprises; unfortunately, it is not available for individuals.
In the photo above, Justin Lehrer, Director, Product Management, and Steven Swartz, Vice President, Sales have designed a map for me showing the age distribution of the population in the area around ITI’s headquarters in Medford, NJ. Here is a closeup of that map (the ITI office is at approximately the center of the map).
I hope my local library subscribes to this service–I’d love to try it out!
