Arcview is one ESRI's
GIS packages. The configuration in the lab can work with raster and
vector files. The following extensions are installed on all our machines: 1)
Spatial Analyst 2) Network Analyst 3) 3D Analyst 4)
S+ for Arcview
We have packages to convert between Mapinfo and Arcview coverages as
well as import various other formats. This software is the predominant
GIS package in both academia and in industry/nonprofit, i.e. it is the
de facto standard. Most of the StatLab expertise is with this GIS package.
We can offer a 2 hour short
course to a department or organization that introduces some of the
capabilities of Arcview
Maptitude provides tools, maps, and US Census demographic data in an
integrated package for the production of maps with geographically based
MapInfo for Windows is mapping software for use with MapInfo compatible
boundary files. Some boundary files for selected geographic areas are
available at the StatLab Boundary files are also available from the
U.S. Bureau of the Census TIGER CD-ROM disks (located at the Government
Documents Center.) These digital map files from the CD-ROM's must be
transferred to MapInfo format before using. Your own data, in dBASE,
Excel, Lotus 1-2-3, and ASCII format, can be displayed on the maps.
MapInfo has many advanced display and analysis capabilities.
This component of the SAS statistical software package produces maps
with the PROC GMAP procedure. Map files are available for the world,
continents, countries, and US cities and counties. Data stored in SAS
datasets may be displayed on the maps. Basic knowledge of SAS is necessary.
|GIS Data Sets
All of the contents
of the ESRI data CDs are located on the StatLab servers and are mapped
(no pun intended) as drive letter G: when you log into the computers
in the StatLab
- MapInfo data layers
These data layers, some on the StatLab network, some on CD-ROM, range
from maps of the globe to maps of a New Haven neighborhood. The inventory provides a complete list.
- Bytes of the Big Apple
These administrative and political maps of New York City were produced
by the Department of City Planning, City of New York. Users may access
these map files (in DXF format) using GIS software, e.g. MapInfo. The
Statlab has the following map files: Boroughs, Community Districts,
Boroughs with water blocks included, Fire Companies, Health Areas, Health
Center Districts, Police Precincts, and School Districts.
- StreetInfo: New York
Extensive street maps for use with MapInfo. Includes railroads, waterways,
landmarks, hospitals, airports, cemeteries, libraries, parks, schools,
and other major points of interest from the US Census Bureau's TIGER
database. Comprehensive address boundaries are included. MapInfo corrected
street names and standardized spelling. Separate tables contain different
levels of detail to a map, you can load all tables or select only those
geographic aspects of the map that you want to display. Familiarity
with MapInfo is recommended.
