Meeting September 14th

“Map Tab functionality within the Census Bureau’s American Factfinder”

12:30 – 4:30
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County
232 Plaza Road Kingston,New York 12401


There will be an interactive discussion with David Kraiker, Data Dissemination Specialist with the US Census Bureau.

David will be talking about the Map Tab functionality within the Census Bureau’s American Factfinder portal. He will show how to access the AFF portal, look at various tabs, and pay considerable attention to the underutilized Map Tab. This tab can be used to create on-the-fly shapefiles and downloaded with corresponding data. He will also answer any questions about Census geography concepts as needed. Also, let us know if there are any particular uses cases you would like to see demonstrated.

There will also be plenty of time for general GIS discussion and some follow with the FAA’s new Small UAS Rule that became effective on August 29, 2016.
If you have another specific topic in mind, please forward your thoughts to Tom Hynes
