We are offering data reports for geographical zones contained in, containing, or adjacent to the area you specify. Currently, Demographic & Housing Report and Quality of Life reports are available.
The data comes from the US Census 2000 and other data sources, ameliorated, cross-compared, formatted and packaged into an html file set for best viewing with a Web browser and into three additinal data formats (XML, CSV, ASCII) for easy loading into a database or processing with other tools.
Each demographic report contains 3000-8000 data fields.
Where applicable, the html reports are enhanced with aerial photo images overlaid with geographical zones of the report, as well as hyperlinks to the TerraFly system for additional information services.

Each report comes in four formats, namely:
The report in HTML format is designed to assist viewing data via a standard Internet browser. Reports in other formats are designed for loading data into a database for further querying and processing. Please note that due to the complexity of data, some files in CSV format will be trimmed if opened by Microsoft Excel. For the same reason some XML files will be slowly processed if opened via a standard Internet browser. Metadata (the column names for fields in the table) is self-descriptive and is stored inside the data files.
The dispensed sample area is Miami Beach, Florida; the TerraAtlas of the same area can be seen here.
The Quality of Life report is shipped via Free Download option as a compressed archieve file in ZIP format.
