Data Analytics and Visualization

SHADAC researchers are experienced in the creation of maps and infographics that let analysts and policymakers “see” data in order to help them better understand the information and put it in a policy context.  Effective visualization can play a critical role in the successful dissemination of policy-related data and in communicating its implications.


SHADAC uses ArGIS and R to create maps illustrating a variety of data across metro, county, state, and national geographies. A few of SHADAC's most recent interactive maps are listed below.
