GIS Class Map #10

Posted on Updated on

A map depicting racial transitions in census tracts in and around the City of St. Louis…specifically, African-American populations, with category “B” being populations with greater than or equal 10% up to less than 90% and category C being populations with greater than or equal 90%. The map shows changes between 1990-2000 with “C to C” transition involving census tracts which remained high in African-American┬ápercentage population and “B to C” transition involving a change from moderate to high percentage during the time period. This basically shows the spread of the African-American population slightly north and west of its main conglomerate in St. Louis.

    The subject of the map is centered perfectly. The only thing I would suggest is not leaving the right side of the map empty. It should be completed with other features like the river or the state of IL shaded in the background or some shaded labels to give ground reference. That was something I learned in Cartography.

      I actually agree with you about the right side. I just used the data and shapefiles I was provided for the assignment. It at least came with a shapefile for the City of St. Louis border to add some kind of reference.
