2009 TIGER/Line Shapefiles
• Release date October 2009
• Additional Shapefiles available
  – More State-based files
• Changed Topological Faces
  Relationship file to a Shapefile
• Improvement in clean-up of feature
  distortion
• Improved Documentation


                                       3
Future TIGER/line Release
            Schedule
• 2010 TIGER/line shapefiles
  – Contains census 2010 geography
  – State by State in early 2011
  – National in early-mid 2011
• Post 2010 TIGER/line shapefiles
  – 113th Congressional Districts
  – Urban/Rural, Urban Areas, Metropolitan
  – TAZ, ZCTAs,SLDs
Most Frequently Asked Questions
• Where are the streets?:
  – The streets are in the county-based All Lines
    (edges) file. There is a Road Flag attribute which
    indicates if the feature is a road or not
• Where is the demographic data?
  – The TIGER/Line® Shapefiles do not contain
    demographic data but have all of the necessary
    information to join the data to them. American
    FactFinder (http://factfinder.census.gov) is the
    best resource for electronic survey data from the
    Census Bureau
Changes Under Consideration
• In addition to the all lines layer:
  – Roads only shapefile
  – Rail only shapefile
  – Linear hydrography shapefile
• In the metadata:
  – Unique description for each file type
  – Including the file layout inside the metadata
  – providing direct links to the file on the Census Bureau’s
    website
  – Provide link to the technical documentation on the Census
    Bureaus website

  tracts, block groups and population subgroups

• Full implementation began January 2005
