ClarkData Geospatial Data Server

The ClarkData Geospatial Data Server (ClarkData) provides geospatial data to the University of Michigan campus. Most publicly available data is not replicated on this server. The server contains data licensed for use by UM users, including current ESRI Data and Maps (10.1) and Landscan data (2000 to 2011).
 
You can access the read-only ClarkData space from most networked computers on campus, for example Clark lab computers, SITES computers, CAEN computers, faculty and staff computers, etc.. If you are on wireless or are off campus, you can do this only if you are using the VPN.
 
From a PC running Windows 7, follow these instructions. The details are slightly different for other operating systems:
1. Go to "My Computer"
2. Click the "Map Network Drive" button along the top of the window
3. In the address section copy this in:
\\ulib-storage.m.storage.umich.edu\ulib-storage\Public\Clark\ClarkData
4. Then click "Finish"
5. When prompted for your login, use your uniqname, and put in your Kerberos/AD password
If that doesn’t work, put UMROOT\ before your uniqname (note the slash
direction). If that doesn’t work, and you know you have two passwords, use the one
you didn’t try yet -- this is technically your AD password (but for most people on campus, this is the same as your Kerberos password).
 
This fileserver is currently being reorganized and more information will be linked from this page soon. For more information, please email clarklibrary@umich.edu .
 
The most current versions of the street network dataset and address locators for the United States are at ESRI > Data_and_Maps_for_ArcGIS_10_1 > streetmap_na > data . If you have the space, performance of network analysis and geocoding will be better if you copy the data from the fileserver rather than just connecting to it.

PolicyMap (Free Version)

Alternative Titles
Policy Map
Description
PolicyMap is an online (no software installation needed) US national data and mapping tool and analytics platform. PolicyMap enables users to concentrate on their subject matter rather than having to spend time learning a GIS tool. 
 
PolicyMap is web-based and geared toward users who may not be GIS experts but want to be able to analyze large amounts of data quickly and produce maps, tables, charts and reports with a minimal learning curve for the application itself.
 
This entry links to the free version of PolicyMap, not the subscription version. The University of Michigan does not have a subscription to PolicyMap at this time.

Landscan

Description

The LandScan Global Population Databases, developed at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, represent resolution global population distribution databases available. This is a geographically based, population distribution model.

LandScan is a global population database that shows geographical distribution of population at one-kilometer resolution over an average 24 hour period.

The LandScan algorithm uses spatial data and imagery analysis technologies and the most up-to-date census data within an administrative boundary. Accurate administrative boundaries are an integral part of the LandScan population distribution modeling process. These population distribution models are tailored to match the data conditions and geographical nature of each individual country and region.

Most national censuses count populations by measuring where people sleep (or reside) rather than where they work or travel. LandScan integrates daytime movements and collective travel habits into a single measure to produce a better representation of where people are located during an average day.

With improvements added this year, high-resolution imagery sources were used extensively for validation to refine urban areas, land cover data, and thousands of smaller villages and populated places.

GIS users can access these data directly from GIS via:
