ESRI Zip Tapestry

In case there was ever any doubt about the type of demographic analysis that can be done with Census data, our pals at ESRI took things to another level when they created a nation-wide demographic viewer that breaks down populations by their zip code into politically correct and quaint stereotypically accurate sometimes-alliterating categories – The Zip Tapestry. Demogrpahics and Lifestyle they call it – others might call it neighborhood profiling. Kinda tough to believe that there wasn’t some market data thrown in with the census data to really characterize these populations. Just check it out. One thing particularly interesting about these ESRI web services maps is that they look dramatically different depending on the browser window. Below is the chrome view, followed by the mozilla view.
