The Census Data Mapper is a web mapping application intended to provide users with a simple interface to view, save and print county-based demographic maps of the United States.
Reference maps are designed to show the geographic locations of features and boundaries. These maps usually contain features, such as roads and rivers, and boundaries, such as county, place, census tracts, or many more. These maps do not contain demographic data and are used solely to show the location of and relationship between boundaries and features. For interactive reference maps see TIGERweb.
Thematic maps are designed to show demographic, economic, business, or socioeconomic data about or characteristics of an area. Thematic maps tell a story spatially. They show a theme, or special topic, for a geographic area. Thematic maps may use features from reference maps as their base and then display additional data to tell a story about that area.
