Aerial imagery is an essential tool for planning and analysis. It presents a comprehensive view of regional conditions. Having access to aerial imagery from various years provides the user with a chronological record of land use patterns. Aerials have been an important component of DVRPC's planning efforts for many years. They are also a popular source of information for consultants, developers, engineers, realtors, and the general public.
On this page, information will be posted about the American Community Survey and decennial Census data, including Census 2010 data, as it is released.
Regional Data Bulletins provide the most recent data sets that are currently available. Analytical Data Reports provide a summary analysis of these data sets, but go into more detailed analysis of data trends. Data Reference Guides are produced on occasion to help better explain the source of types of data and the details of how to use various data sets. Data Snapshots are designed to look more in-depth at specific demographics or topical areas through a series of related snapshots.
The DVRPC Publications Database is continuously updated as reports and other items become available. Visitors can view publication abstracts and/or full PDF versions for over 750 reports from 1988 to present.
A Geographic Information System (GIS) is an important planning tool that provides benefits to DVRPC, its member agencies, and others by supporting state, regional, county, and local planning and technical efforts. Nearly all projects incorporate GIS technology, whether it is for data collection and storage, or analysis and presentation. GIS allows planners to view and query spatial data, perform advanced analysis to discover relationships, patterns, and trends, and effectively present information to decision-makers and the public.
DVRPC collects traffic volume counts at over 5,000 locations each year. The data is collected by the pneumatic tubes you see laying across the road. DVRPC also obtains traffic data collected by other entities and includes that data in its database as a public service. Traffic data is used by transportation engineers and planners, developers, market analysts, and may be of interest to the general public.
