Civic Hacks

Participants will gather at the beautiful and inspiring CCAD MindMarket to learn about the challenges facing Columbus from domain experts, pitch ideas, choose a team, and build technology solutions. The winning team for each civic challenge topic will receive a grant to continue their work beyond the event.

2010 Census Tracts for King County - Conflated to Parcels Shp KC-GIS
Federated from {dataset.domainCName}

he TIGER/Line Files are shapefiles and related database files (.dbf) that are an extract of selected geographic and cartographic information from the U.S. Census Bureau's Master Address File / Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (MAF/TIGER) Database (MTDB). The MTDB represents a seamless national file with no overlaps or gaps between parts, however, each TIGER/Line File is designed to stand alone as an independent data set, or they can be combined to cover the entire nation. Census Blocks are statistical areas bounded on all sides by visible features, such as streets, roads, streams, and railroad tracks, and/or by nonvisible boundaries such as city, town, township, and county limits, and short line-of-sight extensions of streets and roads. Census blocks are relatively small in area; for example, a block in a city bounded by streets. However, census blocks in remote areas are often large and irregular and may even be many square miles in area. A common misunderstanding is that data users think census blocks are used geographically to build all other census geographic areas, rather all other census geographic areas are updated and then used as the primary constraints, along with roads and water features, to delineate the tabulation blocks. As a result, all 2010 Census blocks nest within every other 2010 Census geographic area, so that Census Bureau statistical data can be tabulated at the block level and aggregated up to the appropriate geographic areas. Census blocks cover all territory in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Island Areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Blocks are the smallest geographic areas for which the Census Bureau publishes data from the decennial census. A block may consist of one or more faces.

Census Info by Superneighborhood 2010
Federated from {dataset.domainCName}

This file contains the initial 2010 census population and housing data at the Super Neighborhood level . The population and housing totals in this file represent summarizations of the 288 data items in the original census files. Specifically, populations are aggregated for Hispanic ethnicity and Non-Hispanic populations by 7 racial categories. These same aggregations are available for voting age populations (18 years and over). Housing data is limited to total, vacant and occupied units. Because Super Neighborhood boundaries do not encompass the entire City of Houston, the sum of all Super Neighborhood populations will not correspond with the City of Houston total population. Most of the difference lies in the special purpose annexation areas which are not included in Super Neighborhoods. Other discrepancies may be due to the fact that in many instances census geography does not correspond to the boundaries of other feature classes maintained in COHGIS
