The Food Access Research Atlas:
- Presents a spatial overview of food access indicators for low-income and other census tracts using different measures of supermarket accessibility;
- Provides food access data for populations within census tracts; and
- Offers census-tract-level data on food access that can be downloaded for community planning or research purposes.
What can you do with the Atlas?
- Create maps showing food access indicators by census tract using different measures and indicators of supermarket accessibility;
- View indicators of food access for selected subpopulations; and
- Download census-tract-level data on food access measures.
Note: The Food Access Research Atlas application now has an improved high-resolution map export capability, no longer requires the Flash plugin, and is iPad compatible.
The Food Environment Atlas provides a wider set of statistics on food choices, health and well-being, and community characteristics for all communities in the United States than the Food Access Research Atlas.
