The U.S. Census Bureau released 2010 population, race and housing unit totals for the state of Georgia on March 17, 2011. ARC is currently processing these data, and will soon launch interactive tools that show a decade of change for all counties and cities within the 20-county Atlanta region. In this section, find files for a quick download and interactive maps and charts showing data for individual cities and counties.
The Atlanta Region
ARC is the regional planning and intergovernmental coordination agency for the 10-county Atlanta area, but also produces and collects data for a larger, 20-county area for air quality purposes, and provides services in some counties that it does not provide in others. So, the Atlanta region is defined in many different ways. This section of the site should help clear things up.
Regional Snapshots is a series of monthly publications that compile the latest data to explore important regional issues.
The interactive ArcGIS Viewer for Flex and ArcGIS Online platforms offer unique sites for a variety of ARC projects. Explore the multitude of indicators in the Weave platform.
GIS Data and Maps
The Research & Analytics Division in the Center for Livable Communities provide support in a variety of ways to planning staff, local governments, planning partners, and the general public. Geographic Information Science (GIS) is an ever-growing discipline that combines database information with geographic features for powerful display and analysis. GIS requires hardware, software, data and people to create effective tools that can be used to view, query, analyze and map our region and world.
