Community Analysis and Mapping

Geopolitical and Community Analysis and Mapping involves a broad range of GIS activities and is central to the GIS needs of many organizations particularly local and regional government.  The diversity of these activities requires an assortment of skills including reference and thematic mapping, integrating external data such as census data with internal databases, and performing simple to complex geospatial analyses.  Geospatial and Community Mapping activities where AJD Geospatial Concepts is ready to help include:

  • Reference mapping showing community amenities, facilities, and areas served by different social, public safety, and political districts.
  • Relationship mapping and analysis showing the location of different facilities within a district and how they relate to similar amenities within their own district as well as in neighboring ones.
  • Thematic mapping and analysis of the population and demographic composition for community decision making.
