The CUNY Mapping Service at CUR engages with foundations, government agencies, businesses, nonprofits, and other CUNY researchers to use spatial information and analysis techniques to develop and execute applied research projects. The Mapping Service is directed by Steven Romalewski, who joined the Center for Urban Research in January 2006. Our team includes David Burgoon, Christy Spielman, and Kristen Grady.
We specialize in the development of online applications that provide intuitive access to powerful data sets, displayed visually through interactive maps and in other formats.
- NYC Council districting: an interactive map comparing current districts to proposed lines for the 2012-2013 process to redraw New York's Council districts;
- Eligible voter population by NYS Senate and Assembly district, showing the "citizen voting age population" (CVAP) for each district vs. overall population counts. Move your mouse over each district to display total population counts by race/ethnicity along with CVAP estimates.
