Last month, Housing Virginia previewed a new web-based tool at the Governor’s Housing Conference. MAPBOOK will use both ArcGIS Story Maps and Tableau data visualizations to tell the story of affordable housing across the state. As a companion to SOURCEBOOK and PLAYBOOK, MAPBOOK will provide a visual way to tell the story of affordable housing in your community.
Housing Virginia began MAPBOOK plans several months ago and expects to launch the product mid-2017.
Our first MAPBOOK feature lets you explore the change in housing cost burden in Virginia from 2000 to 2014. Data is provided at the Census tract level, so users can zoom in and view the changes in their own community.
How do you think MAPBOOK could be most useful for you and your organization? What housing trends and data would you like to see mapped? Please complete this short survey to help us design and develop MAPBOOK.
