LandView is a mapping and database tool developed by several federal agencies. It was relased on January 20, 2004. LandView has its roots in the Computer-Aided Management of Emergency Operations (CAMEO) software. CAMEO was developed by EPA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to facilitate the implementation of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act. This far-reaching law requires communities to develop emergency response plans addressing chemical hazards and to make information on chemical hazards in the community public.
This product contains both the simple mapping tool MARPLOTŪ and the LandView database management software.
LandView allows users to map and query Census 2000 geography, Census 2000 demographic and housing data (SF1-SF4), EPA Envirofact sites as of July 2003, and the USGS Geographic Names Information (GNIS) features.
With LandView you can:
There are no plans to create a new LandView product with updated data. Please see CAMEO-MARPLOT from the EPA or the Circular Area Profiles from the Missouri Census Data Center for tools that provide some similar functionality of LandView and have more current data. The TIGER/Line Shapefiles have been significantly updated and improved since Census 2000. Much more current data is available from other sources.
LandView 6 is available for purchase from the US Census Bureau's Geography Division for $129. To order, please call (301) 763-1128.
