Morning with Maps

Despite my sniffling, sneezing, and coughing, I've been enjoying something new I got for work - Manifold GIS software. It's a map viewing and creation tool that lets me get right into the map data published by people like the US Geological Survey, New York State, Tompkins County, and the US Census Bureau.

As much as I like the maps in the Draft Comprehensive Plan, it felt like there were a few maps missing, like ones indicating current population densities. Hopefully - as I learn how to work this thing and where best to find data - I'll be able to make my own while familiarizing myself with this tool.
