Hurricane Sandy: Distribution of Population and Workers

To assist the community in examining these impacts in detail, NLT has developed an interactive web-based mapping application that combines workforce and population data for Staten Island. The tool, based on ArcGIS Online technology, allows users to quickly visualize the distribution and density of workers and population. To get detailed characteristics about workers, users can simply zoom in and click on one of the blue points. To get details about the population density, users can click on one of the shaded (yellow-red) population areas.
