The Place Database is a map of the United States which uses the PolicyMap platform to visualize the latest available data for dozens of indicators—ranging from housing affordability, to brownfield sites, to federal government spending.
Many datasets in this data visualization tool include several years worth of data, so the user can see how things have changed over time. The user can zoom out to see certain data at the state level, or zoom in to see data as close as the block group. Datasets in the tool come from a variety of resources, such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Census Bureau, the Internal Revenue Service, and the National Conservation Easement Database. The tool also includes zoning maps for 105 cities, and detailed fiscal information about the 150 cities in our Fiscally Standardized Cities database (FISC).
