The UMass Amherst Libraries introduce PolicyMap, a map creation tool for visualizing data about communities across the United States, including income, housing, quality of life, and even federal guidelines.

PolicyMap allows users to produce maps, tables and reports with this data at regional, state, congressional district, and county levels, making it an ideal resource for studying current issues and long-term trends that could influence voters’ decisions in the next election.

This resource is available to all UMass Amherst students, faculty, and staff, and is accessible off-campus via UMass Amherst NetID.
