Check out our free trial of PolicyMap, available through Monday, July 11.  PolicyMap is an online US national data and mapping tool and analytics platform for use with teaching, learning and research related to social sciences, urban studies, real estate and housing analysis, community and economic development, public administration, public health, policy and political science, education, business, economics, statistics, and geography, among other area.    Users can leverage thousands of US data indicators in PolicyMap to perform demographic and socioeconomic analysis, from a neighborhood census block group (in many cases), up to a national level, as well as create custom regions, for their research and studies.  PolicyMap data can be presented as maps, tables, charts and pre-built reports that can be incorporated into papers, presentations, blogs and websites; users can also download data from PolicyMap for use in other tools.  In addition, students can upload unlimited amounts of their own address-based data for use in PolicyMap, and can share these maps with others.
